Charging Alternatives When You Struggle to Charge at Home

It was recently announced that Hertfordshire County Council were looking to expand their charging network by deploying more electric vehicle (EV) charging points across the county, in order to meet the Government’s 2030 target. However, they also found that 1 in 4 residents don’t have a garage or driveway, a problem that affects millions of people across the country. Vehicle charging at home isn’t possible here, but it can be…

Here at Elite Vehicle Charging, we can deploy our battery storage portable EV charging stations to destinations and events across the country. Paying attention to off-the-grid locations, we aim to ensure that no region in the UK is left behind in the EV surge. If you find that charging an electric car at home is just not feasible, read our top tips below.

More Destination and Car Park Chargers

To accommodate more EV drivers, there needs to be more accessible chargers on the road, such as at destinations or in car parks. These destinations could be, but aren’t limited to, restaurants, retail car parks and multi-story car parks. Although there are now more EV chargers in the country than petrol stations, they’re usually found at motorway service stations and larger cities; the more chargers that can be found in smaller areas, the better.

Our chargers here at Elite Vehicle Charging can be rented out to events across the country, such as music festivals, weddings and sporting events. If you would like to find out more about our rental service, please visit us here.

Charging at Work

If it’s impossible for you to install a home charger, you may find yourself relying on your work’s charging network to fully charge your car and reduce your range anxiety. Therefore, more businesses need to consider connecting to the charging infrastructure, and with Government grants and incentives available, it’s a great way to improve your business’s reputation and reliability.

In our previous article, we discussed the benefits of having chargers at workplaces, helping businesses reduce the costs and provide more incentives for their workers. Relying on other factors to charge your car might seem like a risky option, but with more and more people opting for electric vehicles, on-site chargers are going to be a much more common sight. Businesses seriously need to consider deploying more EV chargers, particularly for employees who find vehicle charging at home difficult. 

Portable Chargers

Here at Elite Vehicle Charging, we can deploy our portable EV chargers to destinations and events across the UK. Homes without driveways may have to connect to the inside of their homes to charge their cars, which can lead to trip hazards with charging cables. Battery storage chargers can be placed next to your car and provide an efficient charge.

Our chargers are the perfect choice for off-the-grid locations, where connecting to the infrastructure is either too expensive or impossible. Remote locations are at risk of being left behind, as more cities implement chargers across the region. Our chargers can help these areas get connected, and encourage more people to opt for an electric vehicle. To find out more, or to receive a quote, please fill out our online form.
