Gridserve adds Optimus smart EV home charger to salary sacrifice scheme


Gridserve has strengthened its EV salary sacrifice scheme by adding Go Zero Charge’s new Optimus smart EV home charger to the list of benefits.

The home charger is available as an option for those on the scheme as part of a range of benefits including three months’ worth of charging on the nationwide Gridserve Electric Highway.

Driven by an intelligent mobile app, the Optimus gives homeowners access to a variety of smart charging functions.

Drivers can schedule charges based on cheaper, off-peak tariffs to save money on electricity bills, as well as rent out their charger to help offset their electric costs.

In addition, the Optimus features a built-in health check system that updates every 60 seconds.

The Gridserve Electric Highway network has chargers at more than 170 locations with the fastest chargers delivering 100 miles of charge in five minutes.

David Wells, Chief Executive Officer at Go Zero Charge, said, “Go Zero Charge is thrilled to work with Gridserve on the company’s salary sacrifice EV scheme, enabling as many employees as possible to make the transition to EVs.

“The Optimus stands out among other smart EV home chargers, as Gridserve customers will be able to find out.”

Robert Buckland, Chief Leasing Officer for Gridserve Car Leasing said, “For Gridserve, the Optimus is the perfect home charger; the product is tried and tested with market leading and innovative software, along with superb customer support from survey, installation and onwards.

“This new option makes for an attractive offer for both employers and employees. Our salary sacrifice offering is a great benefit for employees as they can save up to 40% on the cost of an electric car lease.”
