Our charity is donating free Charging Stations to businesses in the hotel and leisure industry. In doing so we have created ZeroNet, an unrestricted national charging network that is loved by drivers.
To be part of this innovative network you only need to pay for the installation of your free Charging Station.
Why are you doing this?
Electric cars are the future. Currently passenger cars account for 40% of the UK's carbon transport emissions (Zero Carbon Britain 2030 A New Energy Strategy, P106). A switch to electric cars would dramatically reduce this figure and result in cleaner local air and lower carbon emissions nationwide.
A common barrier to electric car adoption is the lack of places to plug in. We are fixing this with our network, ZeroNet, and its philiosphy of simple, reliable and robust charing. It is this philosophy that will attract drivers to your location.
ZeroNet is a national Pay as You Go network. Charging is for your customers. Like with wifi it can be offered for free or for a small fee.
Help ZeroNet grow by installing a donated Charging Station today. Register your interested by filling in this online form and we'll be in touch.
Who can apply?
To apply for our free donated Charging Station kit you need to agree to all of the conditions below:
Be somewhere a driver can spend three or more hours. This includes but is not limited to hotels, B&Bs, guesthouses, resturants, paintball centres, golf courses and so on.
Have a secure carpark in which you can allocate one parking space as priority EV parking.
Install using our regional installation partners and pay all installation costs. Learn more about our regional installation partners on their 'Meet us' pages:
Our network, ZeroNet, is built on the concept of reliability. We don't want your customers being stranded without a charge due to a faulty Charging Station and we're sure you don't either. As installing Charging Stations requires a special understanding that can only be gained from specific qualifications and courses we insist that all installations are carried out by our regional installation partners.
Installation typically costs between £400 and £500, but this is dependent on your location and the following criteria being met:
The distance between the Charging Station and the electricity meter is less than 30 metres.
You are happy to have black cable clipped externally to the building if necessary.
The cable is not run underground at any point.
The consumer unit is fully accessible.
The building is not listed or in a conservation area.
You are happy for the power to be off for approximately 60 minutes if necessary.
Full details of the cost to you will be in the quote. All of our regional installation partners quote remotely over the phone. See the video below for more information.
The cost to charge an electric car varies depending on a number of factors: How empty it is, how big its battery is, how long it is plugged in, how full the battery is already and how much you pay for electricity. For an average electric car, a full charge will be around £2.50 but not all cars will be fully charging all the time.
We have a fair play pricing policy on charging. Most ZeroNet locations offer charging to their customers for free in exchange for custom and those that don't do not charge more than they do for wifi access. No ZeroNet location charges more than £10.
