What does CityEV do?
We design, make and install smart electric vehicle charging technology which can be used on the street, at work and at home. We provide advice to local authorities on installation and management of charging infrastructure, legal and regulatory requirements and eligibility for central government grants. We are a partner in consortia tenders for public contracts and commercial concessions. We provide revenue collection services for commercial charge point operators. We also work with government and industry groups to develop standards and legislation for electric vehicle charge points.
Where can I buy a CityEV charge point?
CityEV charge points are available from branches of Edmundson Electrical and its green energy distributor Greentech. There are more than 270 Edmundson Electrical or Greentech branches in the UK. CityEV charge points should always be installed by a qualified electrician.
Can I get a grant to install a CityEV charge point?
Commercial and home installations of CityEV charge points may be eligible for OLEV grant funding of up to £500. The grant can be obtained through an authorised installer. Contact your nearest Edmundson Electrical or Greentech branch to find an authorised installer.
What charging cable will I need?
CityEV charge points are compatible with all standard electric vehicle charging cables. You can buy a cable from our online shop.
How do I pay to charge my vehicle?
We’ve designed our charge points to be as easy to use as possible. No membership is required. Payment options will be displayed next to the charge point. You may be able to pay by smartphone, contactless or RFID cashless payment.
Who do I call if the charge point isn’t working?
Follow our simple charge point user guide first of all. If this doesn’t work, and no contact information is provided at the charge point, please call our UK support team on 02393 190109.
Can I use CityEV charge points as part of a network management system?
CityEV charge points are set up for network management. Smart metering is built into the units which can be monitored remotely. Software can be reset and updated automatically. Units are built to last but can be replaced in less than 10 minutes due to their simple design. For operators who want to outsource network management, we have an API back office interface that enables integration with other systems. Charge points can be CityEV-branded or supplied under white label for operators to add their own branding.
Are CityEV charge points safe to use at home?
Yes. All of our electric vehicle charge points comply with the latest safety regulations. Household charge points should always be installed by a qualified electrician.
