Fuel payment card provider Allstar Business Solutions has boosted the number of electricity charge points its customers can use.
The firm partnered with social enterprise Charge My Street to add more than 100 locations to the network accepting its One Electric payment card.
Allstar now has more than 7,400 charge points in its roster, allowing company car drivers to power-up their vehicles at in excess of 2,700 locations across the UK.
Charge My Street installs and operates public charge points funded by community investment. It eventually aims to ensure that no electric vehicle (EV) drivers live more than a five-minute walk from their nearest recharging station.
The social enterprise joins Alfa Power, Allego, ESB Energy, LiFe, GeniePoint, Mer, Osprey, Plug-N-Go, Source London and GRIDSERVE Electric Highway in the Allstar network.
Allstar Business Solutions managing director for global EV solutions Tom Rowlands said: “Ensuring that all fleet drivers have the opportunity to transition to EVs is critical.
“Working through how we can better support all drivers and fleets to ensure a frictionless and successful transition to EVs is our priority.
“That’s why it’s so important to join forces with the likes of Charge My Street, which will provide a convenient solution for those drivers that cannot have their own residential charge point.”
Charge My Street director Daniel Heery added: “We are delighted to partner with Allstar, supporting the UK’s businesses in recharging their EVs at home even when there is not an off-street solution available.
“Our goal is for every home to be within a five-minute walk of a charge point as we firmly believe in making EVs accessible for everyone.”
