- Pod Point and Fuller’s agree three year deals
- 10 London and south-east pubs get chargepoints
- Fuel up while you drink up
- Charge up your EV for free
WE’LL drink to this – Pod Point and Fuller’s pubs agreeing a three-year preferred supplier deal.
The result sees 10 London and south-eastern Fuller’s pubs with electric chargepoints.
Fuller’s investment in electric vehicle (EV) charging makes it one of the largest scale rollouts in the hospitality sector and comes in addition to three Fuller’s sites that already boast Pod Point EV charging facilities.
The new chargepoints are free to use for both customers and staff. Fuller’s said it wanted to cater more for growing number of EVs on the road that come to its hostelries.
Pod Point is also working with the pub company, which owns almost 400 managed and tenanted pubs and hotels, to carry out a trial monitoring the average daily mileage of its fleet. This data will help Fuller’s identify which parts of its fleet could easily be switched to EVs.
Jonathon Swaine, Managing Director of Fuller’s Inns, said:
“We’re always looking to give our customers more reasons to visit our pubs and free charging will be a popular incentive for the growing community of EV drivers. We’ll seek to build on these initial installs and rollout to more pubs as the number of EV drivers continues to rise.”
Erik Fairbairn, Pod Point CEO and Founder, added:
“EV drivers will be saying cheers to Fuller’s now that they can relax with a meal and a – non-alcoholic – drink while topping up their charge. EV charging should be something drivers don’t have to think about and having chargepoints available in locations where people typically spend an hour or more is hugely important in supporting the UK’s transition to EVs.”
