To avail of free charging, sign up to a PAYG payment plan here. This plan operates on a pre-pay basis, whereby you top up with credit. Credit will be taken from your payment card but will not be used when charging at Birmingham chargers for the duration of the free charging offer. The lowest amount of credit that can be added to an account upon registering is £10. Any credit you load today will continue to be available in full once pay for use is introduced later in the summer.
Alternatively, you can also ‘charge and go’ by making a once off anonymous transaction at any of our chargers in Birmingham via our EV Plug In app. You will not be charged for the transaction at Birmingham chargers for the duration of the free charging offer.
The EV Plug In app is available to download from the Google Play store, and the Apple App store.
The free charging offer is for a limited time only. Later in the summer, pay for use will be introduced across the network.
