Alfa Power has joined Octopus Energy's Electric Juice Network, allowing you to pay for all of your charging sessions across different networks on one bill!
Alfa Power will join LiFe Energy, Hubsta and Plug-N-Go alongside launch partners Char.gy and Osprey to take the total number of compatible chargers to over 1,000 in the UK.
In addition to rapid charging and inner-city coverage, the slew of new partners will add stronger presence in the North West, East of England and Guernsey to the already considerable Electric Juice Network.
Drivers of electric vehicles (EVs) will now be able to pay with their Octopus Energy account across the participating charging networks, with all costs appearing on a single bill. As further networks are added to the roaming service, users of Electric Juice will soon be able to access many more charging stations nationwide.
With this ‘one-stop shop’, Octopus offers a solution to a long-standing problem of EV drivers who have criticised that there’s no standardised way of paying as each network has a different card or app. The service is open to all drivers of electric cars so that everyone can benefit from this new and more convenient way of charging - whether they are already one of Octopus Energy’s 1.7 million customers or not.
Zoisa Walton of Octopus Energy’s Electric Juice Network, comments:
“Thanks to these new partnership agreements, users of the Electric Juice Network can now benefit from considerable cross-country coverage, and even more access to rapid charging across the UK, in addition to the networks already included with the network. All this makes it easier than ever to pay for all your charges with one simple bill.
“Each time a partner joins the network we get a step closer to creating the effortless charging system that current EV drivers want, potential EV drivers need and the decarbonisation of our roads demands."
Varun Gandhi, CTO at Alfa Power, adds:
“It is great to partner with a forward thinking organisation who are at the forefront of innovation within the energy industry. We are very excited to join the Electric Juice Network as it opens up another way for EV drivers to seamlessly use our expanding network.”
Alfa Power also started to roll out contactless payment solutions in August, which you can read about here.
