What is the driver customer experience like?
The most customer-friendly in the UK.
Drivers can pay by normal contactless with their credit or debit card, or their mobile wallet (e.g. ApplePay). This is standard across our chargers – which is rare.
Drivers don’t have to register or be a member, they can turn up and charge just like using a petrol station.
Our chargepoints are compatible with all cars currently on the market, including the very popular Renault Zoe.
Does Osprey Charging have 24/7 driver support?
Absolutely. The number for our 24/7 helpline is on the front of every chargepoint, and our team can start, stop and re-set charges remotely.
How do drivers find Osprey Charging chargepoints?
Osprey Charging charger locations are shown on all major map and charging apps (including Google Maps), with live availability shown on ZapMap, WattsUp and in the in-car satnavs of Audi and Jaguar cars.
What does Osprey Charging do about non-EV cars parking in the EV bays?
Most Osprey Charging sites have two rapid chargers and multiple allocated charging bays, which are clearly marked on the tarmac and on signage as EV-only. There is usually a free parking bay with charger access even if one bay is “ICE’d”. We can also integrate with existing carparking management to enforce the restriction on EV bays.
How is Osprey Charging funded?
Osprey Charging has secure infrastructure fund backing, which allows us to fully fund the installation and operation (including all customer service and maintenance) of public rapid chargers, at no cost to the host landlord.
What is the process for installing rapid EV chargers?
The first step is to have a conversation about your portfolio or specific site(s) with our business development team (you can request a callback here). We then use our proprietary site selection model to quantitatively and qualitatively assess your preferred sites and agree a list with you. Our Operations team applies for a direct grid connection on your behalf, and planning where required, and resolves any legal processes. Once you’re happy with the site plans, the lease is signed (this can be a standard lease across a number of sites) and we pay for the grid, book contractors and secure an energization date with the local network operator.
How long does it take to install rapid EV chargepoints?
There is no ‘standard’ timeline for charger installation. We have an experienced team in place to make the processes as efficient as possible, but parameters beyond our control within the legals or connection process can hold things up. From signing the lease, we aim to build and energise sites within 6-8 weeks.
Can the chargepoints on my site have their own branding?
Osprey Charging are open to discussions with partners about charger visual branding, and will always respect your site aesthetics and experience. We have two standard Osprey Charging ‘wraps’ which can host partner logos, and for large portfolios can consider a bespoke, partner-branded wrap.
