Rolec’s EV Charge Online Network Goes From Strength To Strength

Rolec EV has announced that several hundred EV charging points are already forming part of its new ‘revolutionary’ EV Charge Online network since its launch at the end of 2016.

A large number of these in-situ EV charging points have been installed for leading companies such as Next, Aldi, Taylor Wimpey, Symantec and the NHS among others. Rolec confirmed that many more EV charging points are currently in production and will expand the network even further across the country in the near future.

Rolec’s EV Charge Online network is proving extremely popular in the public facing arena due to its ethos of ensuring the EV driver only pays for the charge advertised on the charging point, without having to pay any other costly fees.

Managing Director of Rolec EV, Kieron Alsop, commented: “EV Charge Online is the ‘true’ open EV charge point network, launched in response to the growing number of UK EV drivers who were feeling frustrated by the heavy financial burdens placed on them by many of the current national EV charge point network providers.

“With recent developments in the EV charging industry resulting in even more driver and host fees being applied, demand for our EV Charge Online network has hugely increased.

“EV Charge Online allows each and every EV driver to simply pull up to a charge point on the network and pay securely on the spot via their mobile phone for its use. No need for any RFID cards or commitment to joining any specific charging network - therefore avoiding unnecessary annual subscription fees, monthly membership fees and costly ongoing connection charges.

“In effect the EV driver is now only paying for the charge which is, we believe, as it should be.”

  • No EV driver annual membership fees
  • No EV driver monthly subscription fees
  • No EV driver charging connection fees
  • No host licence fees
  • No host charging connection fees

Alsop continued: “EV Charge Online can be incorporated into our entire EV charging product range including the AutoCharge pedestal, which is our public facing charging solution, as well as our recently launched EV charging street light.

“Just as important is that we are able to easily retro-fit the EV Charge Online system into existing public facing charging pedestals that have been manufactured and installed by others.”
