Tusker Case Study
We upgraded Tusker’s head office in Watford to enable hassle-free charging for their staff and visitors.
Tusker, a carbon neutral, award winning car scheme provider needed 12 chargers upgrading at their head office in Watford to enable hassle free and reliable charging.
The installation was project managed within ChargedEV, as well as ChargedEV being the sole supplier and installer throughout the project including EVSE, groundworks and back-office management.
Although there was infrastructure in place, this was installed to prior regulations so needed installing to Amendment 2, not OCPP compliant for their back office needs, as well as not adequate for the future proof solution that Tusker required.
This meant that we had to remove the existing infrastructure, reverse the original groundworks before we could start a brand new installation.
Alongside this, Tusker’s car park was a through access for other companies in their business estate, so coordination with the car park owner was required to ensure there was minimum disruption.
Brand new, faster chargers moving from 7kW to 22kW with a Chargeasy back-end solution to enable Tusker to provide different tariff rates to electric vehicle drivers.
This enabled Tusker to identify who was charging and when.
With a simple QR code to scan on the charger; EV drivers are able to park, scan the app, plug in and charge with peace of mind and the ability to monitor throughout the day.
This was applied to all 12 22kW Easee chargers assigned to 12 different parking bays.
Kim Gardiner, Office Manager said:
“ChargedEV recently supplied and installed 6 double, fast, 22kW chargers for our offices in Watford to replace the 7kW ones we had previously so we could charge 12 cars at once. We have a number of drivers who rely on our chargers and so it was important that we had a system that was reliable and effective.
ChargedEV managed the whole process from start to finish, from a quick and efficient quote, to installation and commissioning from engineers who were friendly, well-organised and tidy. Ricky, our contact, was always on hand to answer any queries throughout the entire process and we now have posts and barriers which are branded and which look great.
Feedback from our EV drivers has been really positive with the process much easier and quicker to do than before.”
