Pod Point picks up shortfall on workplace electric vehicle charging grants

CEO Erik Fairbairn

EDF-owned charging provider Pod Point is offering temporarily to make up subsidy cuts for workplace electric vehicle charging stations.

OLEV last month trimmed grants under the Workplace Charging Scheme by up to £150.

PodPoint said it will make up the shortfall until July, offering up to £200 per socket for bulk workplace and fleet orders. Combining the deal with WCS money, purchasers can hypothetically reduce unit costs by a maximum of £550 per socket, according to firm.

“We’re topping the grant back up … to make it easier for businesses to transition to EVs,” said CEO Erik Fairbairn.
