Netherlands-based charge point operator Opcharge has entered the UK market with the opening of its first EV charging stations at the Church of England’s Diocese of Oxford head office.
These charge points will be used by staff and visitors to charge their vehicles while undertaking Church business and the hub is expected to drive forward the reduction of the Diocese carbon footprint and form part of the church plan to reach net-zero by 2035.
The 22kW Compleo AC chargers being installed at the Diocese of Oxford feature a user-friendly interface, and can be operated single-handedly so are ideal for all drivers.
They offer fast charging speeds, allowing staff and visitors alike the ability to quickly charge their vehicles and get back on the road.
Opcharge is planning to continue its expansion into the UK market in the coming months with the installation of EV charging stations at multiple sites across the country.
Its business model involves facilitating the installation, maintenance and ongoing costs of EV chargers for customers.
