Octopus Energy has added charging provider, Engenie to its Electric Juice Network.
In addition to Engenie’s 100 charging locations, London’s first rapid charging hub will also be included in the Electric Juice Network.
Engenie launched the hub in partnership with Transport for London (TfL), at Stratford International Station car park in 2019. The inclusion of rapid chargers and more national locations means the Electric Juice Network now has significant inner-city and on-the-road coverage.
Drivers of electric cars will now be able to pay with their Octopus Energy account across both Engenie and Char.gy charging networks, with all costs appearing on a single bill.
As further networks are added to the roaming service, users of Electric Juice will soon be able to access many more charging stations nationwide. The service is open to all drivers of electric cars.
“Thanks to this partnership with Engenie, users of the Electric Juice Network can now benefit from rapid chargers across the country and a rapid charging hub in London, in addition to lamppost charging already provided by the Char.gy network,” said Zoisa Walton of Octopus Energy’s Electric Juice Network.
“Each time a partner joins the network we get a step closer to creating the charging system that current EV drivers want, potential EV drivers need and the decarbonisation of our roads demands.”
For his part, Engenie CEO, Ian Johnston added: “Whilst Engenie will always offer tap-and-go payment on our rapid chargers, connecting our network to Electric Juice gives customers the added benefit of being able to pay for their charging on their home electricity bill.
“We believe this is a crucial step towards providing a totally seamless experience for EV drivers that allows them to choose the best way for them to access and pay for charging.”
