Pod Point has signed a two-year preferred partnership agreement to provide EV charging infrastructure for house builder Redrow’s new build properties across England and Wales.
The new partnership follows the Part S Legislation which came into force in June 2022, as part of an amendment to the country’s Building Regulations.
These regulations aim to future proof homes and buildings and supports the government’s target to reduce the UK’s carbon emissions.
According to Part S, all new residential developments in England must have at least one 7kW chargepoint for every residence with a parking space, with similar legislation also having been or soon to be brought in across the devolved nations of Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
The partnership builds on an existing relationship in which Pod Point has supplied 2000 chargepoints to Redrow since 2018.
Redrow builds more than 5700 new homes each year and is committed to reaching an all-electric car fleet by the end of 2025.
Andy Palmer, CEO, Pod Point, said, “We’re delighted to strengthen our partnership with Redrow as their preferred EV charging provider. Redrow’s commitment to enabling more sustainable transport choices aligns with our mission to put a chargepoint everywhere you park, enabling mass adoption of electric cars and working towards a future where EV charging is accessible and convenient for all.”
Stephen Horridge, Head of Procurement at Redrow said, “We are excited to partner with Pod Point to further enhance the sustainability of our developments. Pod Point’s industry-leading products, expertise, and supply chain security make them the ideal partner to meet the rapidly growing demand we’re seeing from customers for EV charging.”
