Pay As You Go Electric Vehicle Charging

Pay As You Go


No Connection or Set Up Fees - just charge and go!

If you are an occasional user, you can pay as you go at any of our rapid charging points from just 29p* per kWh.


We charge per unit of electricity known as kilowatt hour (kWh). The mileage you will get per kWh will depend on your vehicle and driving style. All our chargers use 100% renewable electricity. 

There are two Pay as You Go payment options:

  1. Pay as You Go: Make a once off transaction at any of our charging points via our EV Plug In app. No account required.
  2. Pre-Pay: Register with us and load your account with pre-paid credit either online via your ESB Energy EV account, or on our EV Plug In app.

What's Included

  • Charge and go via our EV Plug In app which is available to download from the Google Play store and  Apple app store
  • Live charging point map
  • 24/7 customer care support
  • Option to purchase charging point access card for £10

Note: To ensure a charge point is available for the next user, an overstay fee of £10 will apply for charging sessions longer than one hour.
