Chargemaster charging point in UK
British electric vehicle drivers should feel lucky, as the largest charging network of roughly 10,000 points in the UK seems to be reliable. Not so much for most of the regions in the rest of the world.
Chargemaster stated that over the last year, its owned and maintained infrastructure achieved a 98.7% serviceability record for all charge points on a month-by-month basis.
"Today, just two charge points installed and maintained by Chargemaster in London are not fully operational, and both of these are scheduled to be back online within the next few days."
David Martell, Chargemaster CEO, commented:
“We are proud to have the best-maintained charge points not only in London, but across the entire UK electric vehicle charging estate. Our own Chargevision back-end management system is the best in the business and provides us with diagnostics on every single one of our charge points, every minute of the day.”
“We take maintenance and serviceability very seriously. As the UK’s largest provider of EV charging infrastructure, we have a responsibility to ensure that electric car drivers can rely on our network to enable them to complete their journeys.”
As there are plenty of AC charging points in this and other networks, the main question remains whether DC fast chargers are operational all or most of the time too?
