How to use GRIDSERVE Electric Highway charge points

Access to all upgraded GRIDSERVE Electric Highway charge points is via contactless debit/credit card.

For those charge points that have not yet been replaced, access to the Electric Highway network is via either smartphone app or RFID card. Rapid points use the app to begin the charging process, with free WiFi at each unit to ensure smartphone connection is possible. Fast chargers are accessed via the RFID card – a legacy access type before previous owner Ecotricity introduced an app-based payment system.

How does GRIDSERVE Electric Highway compare to other networks in terms of pricing?

Zapmap monitors the prices of charging on the public network and reports on the prices charged by the top 10* rapid charging networks. The prices are updated on a monthly basis here: Rapid Charging: Top 10 Network Pricing

The price to charge an electric vehicle (EV) on the public charging network can vary substantively, and prices are increasing due to current issues in the energy market.
Updated on a monthly basis, the Zapmap Price Index shows the difference in prices paid depending on the type of charger and will also track how this is changing over time.

About GRIDSERVE Electric Highway

GRIDSERVE is a tech-enabled, international sustainable energy business that develops, builds, owns and operates solar energy and battery storage solutions for critical power infrastructure. The company is aiming to deliver a UK-wide, sustainable energy powered network of charge points to allow the fastest possible net-zero carbon charging of electric vehicles.

In March 2021, GRIDSERVE bought a 25% stake in the Electric Highway and announced it was collaborating with Ecotricity to transform the charging network. In June 2021, GRIDSERVE completed the sale and took full ownership of the Electric Highway.

As well as installing new Electric Highway locations, GRIDSERVE has been upgrading all existing Electric Highway charging devices. The company is replacing them with new technology, doubling the capacity and offering CCS, CHAdeMO and AC – as well as contactless payment.
