The installation included five PG EV Plus+, a commercial floor mounted pedestal dual-socket charger. Using the integrated payment terminal, EV drivers can pay for charging sessions with contact/contactless and swipe using a credit/debit card, as well as e-wallet, making the user experience as easy and simple as possible with a tap and go.
The Plus+, which features a touchscreen, also offers charging revenue, parking revenue and advertising revenue.
In Exchange Quay’s solution, advertising and overstay charging features were included that will provide a pay back on their capex invested in just three years. The installation also included crash protection using stop wheels, parking bay marking and signage.
Paula Tidmarsh, Estate Manager at Exchange Quay, said:
“From start to finish the service provided by Pilot Group was excellent. We wanted a solution to our lack of Electrical Vehicle charge points and Pilot Group delivered this solution.
“We’re extremely excited to be offering EV charge points to our tenants and we hope that they are taken advantage of, or they inspire some customers to take advantage of them.”
Archie MacPherson, Managing Director at Pilot Group said:
“At Pilot Group we are passionate about sustainability and preserving our natural environment, that is why we look for sustainability in all our solutions.
“We’re delighted when we introduced Electric Vehicle Charge Points to our vast portfolio and as an EV driver myself I’m acutely aware of the limited infrastructure currently in place.
“We’ve been on a mission to promote and encourage the implementation of an electrical charging infrastructure to enable the adaptation to a cleaner electric vehicle future.
“Working with Exchange Quay to provide them with Electric Vehicle Charge Points has been a pleasure and we’re thrilled that the installation has given their tenants an EV option moving forward.”
