The charge card allows Alpha Electric users (mostly business fleets) to get access to an estimated 85% of all public charging points in the UK.

Alpha Electric is able to offer this charge card as part of a recent deal it signed with Chargemaster.

As Business Car reports:

"Each card costs a flat fee of £20 per year, and billing for electric usage will take the form of a "consolidated monthly invoice."

"The firm is also offering private membership on a direct debit basis. It stated that charging points vary in their fee structures..."

Alphabet's head of corporate mobility, Kit Wisdom, stated:

"Rather than signing up to multiple cards for the various different networks, we are able to offer drivers access to the majority of public charging points throughout the UK, including many of the Plugged-in Places schemes, through a simple one card pay-per-use solution."

"In addition, we'll be providing Alpha Electric customers with access to a comprehensive map of suitable charging points through our website and the free-to-download Alpha Guide app."
