EDF Energy is partnering with Peugeot UK and Citroën UK to offer residential and fleet customers electric vehicle (EV) recharging products and services with the sale of every Peugeot iOn or Citroën C-Zero.
The partnership between EDF Energy, Peugeot UK and Citroën UK will create a one-stop-shop for customers, ensuring best in class motoring technology and safe and convenient recharging solutions. It will support the development, future marketing and up-take of fully electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
The residential package, which includes a free site survey, makes it even easier and faster to charge a new Peugeot iOn or a Citroën C-Zero. Following a free home survey and the installation of a dedicated charging point, drivers can benefit from faster charging times of up to 35 per cent. The package also includes a timer to enable easy off peak recharging, a smart meter and an EV consumption statement which shows owners the cost of charging the car, along with a full 3 year warranty on the charge point.
EDF Energy will offer business fleet customers a range of recharging products and services depending on the organisation’s requirements. These include: site survey, technical report, a range of recharging products, installation services and smart metering technology. EDF Energy has been facilitating the site survey and installation of charge points at all Peugeot and Citroën appointed EV dealers across the UK. In addition, EDF Energy has already provided training to dealership staff on safe recharging.
Eric Salomon, Energy Field Services director at EDF Energy, said: “We are delighted to be working with Peugeot UK and Citroën UK and to offer an electric vehicles package to the domestic and fleet customers. As Britain’s largest producer of low-carbon electricity, it fits perfectly with EDF Energy’s ambitions to be a leader in low carbon solutions. We understand that the take-up of clean, low-carbon electric transport is crucial to Britain in meeting its carbon reduction targets.”
