As energy prices increase across the UK, RAW wants to celebrate World EV Day by giving all drivers the chance to charge up for free across the UK. With an estimated 45% of drivers needing to charge their EV’s away from home, RAW understands the importance of destination charging, offering some of the lowest charging costs in the industry. As a driver friendly network, RAW continues to work with businesses across the UK to deliver destination charging to help aid the transition to EVs ahead of the government ban of new diesel and petrol cars in 2030.
RAW has recently launched charging facilities at the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet York and has announced plans for a new ChargeYard in Oxford as part of a sponsorship with Oxford City Football Club. RAW has also launched the Charge Yard facility in Slough and is exclusively working with Greene King to install EV Charging across their sites in the UK. RAW works with a variety of businesses looking to offer EV charging and looks to continue delivering destination charging across the UK and Europe.
Bruce Galliford, CEO, RAW Charging, said:
“We’d like to celebrate World EV Day by giving back to the EV drivers of the UK. We try and keep our charging rates down across the UK and we’d like to thank our customers by offering free AC and DC charging on 9 September 2022. We look forward to continuing our rollout of destination charging across the UK and Europe to help aide the transition to EVs.”
