We're building simple, sustainable on-street charging for everyone
We started char.gy in June 2016 with the goal of solving residential electric vehicle charging for people without off-street parking, such as driveways or garages. Our first charge points available to the general public were installed in Marlow in May 2018. Today we have installed more than 1200 across the country.
It's our mission to make charging your electric vehicle as simple as charging your phone
Many charge point services today are too complicated, too impractical for daily use and ultimately stop a large number of people from embracing electric vehicles. We want to build a service that solves these issues and encourages more people to buy into electric vehicles.
We envisage a world where every lamppost is also a charge point.
Drivers without off-street parking are still not catered for when it comes to charging an electric vehicle, and that’s just not cool! Imagine a world where every lamppost is also a charge point. Wouldn’t that make things simpler? We think so, and this is why we want to roll out char.gy to all corners of the UK and eventually, the world.
The char.gy journey
char.gy is the brainchild of our CEO, Richard Stobart, who was frustrated by the lack of charging solutions for drivers without off-street parking, such as those living in apartments or in houses without a driveway or garage.
