Octopus Energy’s Electric Juice Network has hit a new milestone, with 1,000 points now connected.
This comes as the company announces that four more charging firms have joined the network, with Franklin Energy LiFe, Hubsta, Alfa Power and Plug-N-Go joining the roaming service, boosting Octopus’s numbers over the thousand mark.
Together, these will improve the network's fast and rapid charging coverage, as well as its inner-city spread. In particular, they add a stronger presence in the North West, Yorkshire, East of England and even Guernsey.
The new partners add to Octopus Energy recent agreements with Char.gy and Osprey (formerly Engenie), who joined the network earlier this year, as part of a successful Beta launch in May 2020.
Zoisa Walton of Octopus Energy’s Electric Juice Network said the new partnership agreements mean users of the Electric Juice Network can now benefit from “considerable cross-country coverage, and even more access to rapid charging across the UK, in addition to the networks already on-board".
“This makes EV charging on the go already considerably easier, and it is a crucial step towards providing a totally seamless charging experience, wherever you are in the country.
"Each time a partner joins the network we get one step closer to creating the effortless charging system that current EV drivers want, potential EV drivers need and the decarbonisation of our roads demands."
Octopus Energy’s Electric Juice is designed to offer a ‘one-stop shop’ solution for EV drivers, providing a standardised way of paying for charging.
