Unique technology means charging EVs for Drax's business customers is easier
15th February 2023
Energy supply business Drax has partnered with EV charging payment experts, Mina, to offer award-winning technology solutions to its business customers.
The two new payment products that Drax now offers will help businesses, whose employees drive company EVs which they charge either at home or on the road, by automatically directing the expenses to the company, thus reducing admin time and ensuring payment accuracy.
When charging at home, Mina Homecharge® accurately pays driver’s charging costs direct to their energy supplier. For business drivers charging on the road, Mina Chargepass® allows them to charge at no cost to the individual and combine the costs in a single monthly invoice sent directly to their employer.
Business drivers will no longer have to pay to charge or claim any expenses, as all costs will be charged back to their employer each month. This helps businesses maximise efficiency as it cuts out the need to manage multiple expense claims, significantly reducing admin time for both the business and driver.

Mina Homecharge and Chargepass are excellent solutions that allow organisations to give their EV drivers flexibility when it comes to where they charge their vehicles.
Adam Hall, Director of Energy Services, Drax, said: “We’re always looking for ways to improve our business customers’ experience and offer them access to the services they’ve told us they need. Mina Homecharge and Chargepass are excellent solutions that allow organisations to give their EV drivers flexibility when it comes to where they charge their vehicles.”
For fleet drivers who need to charge on the road, Chargepass offers the fastest dedicated charging network to businesses, with 44% of chargers being either rapid or ultra-rapid. The network currently offers access to over 11,000 public EV chargers across the UK, with plans to grow considerably over the coming months.
Ashley Tate, CEO and Co-Founder, Mina said: "Working with credible partners such as Drax is really important to ensure we’re able to reach more businesses. Drax offers businesses an extensive range of services for the fleet and workplace charging markets and we’re delighted to be part of that product mix."
“One of the biggest challenges businesses face is how to pay for their drivers’ EV charging costs fairly and that can be a very complex area to navigate. By offering Mina, Drax can simplify the process for their business customers enabling companies to transition to electric vehicles with ease."
