From free charging for company cars to charging for employee vehicles: a versatile solution
When companies install EV chargers at their offices, they need to be able to charge company cars for free, while allowing employees’ private cars and visitors’ EVs to charge at a cost.
With the ENECHANGE EV Charging Service, EV charging stations can be configurated as free or paid for both public and private charging, allowing for both effective use of EV chargers throughout the day and management of company-owned vehicle charging usage.
