Urban Charging provides fully managed solutions to businesses wanting to offer electric vehicle charging to its employees and customers

Our service is specifically aimed at workplace solutions and what we class as destination solutions.

Through our network of equipment manufacturers, installers, utility suppliers and funding providers we can offer your business a bespoke solution to ensure the best and most cost-effective way to delivering your EV charging needs.

CHARGER TYPES

  • EV charging points are available in a variety of power ratings and these dictate charging times; in essence the greater the rating the faster the charge. We can advise the best solution for your needs.
  • Rapid Chargers offer power ratings of up to 45kW and above, they can typically charge 80 percent of an electric car’s battery capacity in 20-30 minutes, depending on the on-board charger in the vehicle.
  • Fast Chargers offer power ratings between 7kW-22kW and typically take 1-4 hours for a full charge.
  • Slow Chargers produce up to 3kW of power which is a similar rate to a standard 13 Amp three-pin plug. They typically take up to 8 hours to charge an electric vehicle.

GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS

  • The time it takes to charge an electric car can be as little as 30 minutes or more than 12 hours. This depends on the size of the battery and the speed of the charging point.
  • A typical electric car (60kWh battery) takes just under 8 hours to charge from empty-to-full with a 7kW charging point.
  • Most drivers top up charge rather than waiting for their battery to recharge from empty-to-full. For many electric cars, you can add up to 100 miles of range in circa 30 minutes with a 50kW rapid charger.
  • The bigger your car’s battery and the slower the charging point, the longer it takes to charge from empty to full.
  • Our charging points offer the very latest in technology to ensure full management of your chargers. You can set customisable tariffs with different levels for a variety of needs, monitor utilisation and power usage and control access. All of which can be done through our online portal.
