How does ubitricity 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 ubitricity

One of the UK’s largest charge point networks, ubitricity  is a wholly owned subsidiary of Shell and belongs to the Mobility Division. It manufactures and operates electric vehicle charge points incorporated into new and existing lamp-posts and bollards. Because there is no need to dig up the pavement – the charge points’ electricity supply is from the lamp-post feed – installation is faster and cheaper than with a conventional unit.

The company’s units use a Type 2 inlet, and charging at up 5.5 kW is possible from most chargers – though some are restricted to 3 kWh where infrastructure dictates.

ubitricity has worked with over 30 local authorities to rollout over 7,000 on-street residential charge points across the UK.
