Drax launches Charge Assist app for EV customers
7th June 2022
As energy and electrification partners, making business operations run smoother - while supporting the electric revolution - is always a paramount goal. We’re therefore delighted to offer our new Charge Assist app to our electric vehicle (EV) customers.
With EV adoption accelerating rapidly, the need for infrastructure to support charge accessibility is paramount. That’s why we worked with our partner to offer the Charge Assist app with our customers’ needs in mind.
What is Charge Assist?
Charge Assist is a mobile phone application that allows Drax customers to make quick and secure payments for their EV charging sessions. Incorporating Apple and Google Pay (as well as Visa/MasterCard credit and debit cards) it gives drivers a convenient and easy way to charge their EVs.
Another feature locates charge stations and provides information such as their availability and charging speed. This makes sure your drivers have the best chance of minimising downtime plugged-in, optimising productivity. The app also contains all session information and can generate receipts - perfect for businesses on the road.
The potential for a new revenue stream for your business
Fleets using Drax’s electrification services can use Charge Assist to offer charging for both employees and the public. Unlike many third-party apps, charging payments go straight to your business, meaning your electrification journey can quickly turn into revenue generation. This not only helps offset your initial EV investment, but can bring greater support for your business’ electrification plan in future.
Flexibility means it’s good for the grid
We can control our EV charging assets remotely. This presents the opportunity for us to treat them as flexible assets – electric machinery that can be strategically powered up or down at convenient times. This means we can offer cost savings to you by being able to provide you with cheaper electricity from lower demand periods.
