ScottishPower supports businesses to make the switch to electric vehicles

At ScottishPower, we’re committed to helping businesses make the transition to electric vehicles (EVs).

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing this generation and the business community can play a major role in tackling the issue by making the switch to cleaner transport and increasing the number of EVs in their fleet.

So why make that switch?

Investing in an EV fleet will help futureproof your business and develop your green, sustainable credentials. It also provides essential facilities for both your customers and your workforce and allows you to take advantage of current grants and tax benefits, which reduces the initial outlay a business needs to make.

Having an EV charge point also helps to differentiate you from competitors. For example, EV drivers will be more likely to visit a store where they can charge their car as they shop and it may even encourage them to stay a little longer.

At ScottishPower, we’re making it as easy as possible for businesses like you to make the switch to EV technology. We’re putting you in the driving seat throughout the process and helping you deliver the clean transport revolution with our bespoke support options. This support includes:

  • Consultation to assess your business and/or fleet requirements
  • Tailored hardware and installation service options
  • 24/7 back-up through a dedicated helpdesk
  • Three years maintenance package and warranty
  • Ongoing customer management

Now is the time for businesses to take advantage of the host of safe, smart charging solutions to meet their EV needs. We can design bespoke solutions and take businesses through each step of the process, from the design and supply of chargers, to installation and ongoing support.

We’re also developing a network of public charge points so that businesses can be safe in the knowledge that wherever they have to travel, they’ll be able to stay on the move.

As a company, we’re incentivising our own ScottishPower employees to make the personal switch to an EV and our EV fleet scheme has accelerated the transition to electric vehicles across our business.

Plus, there’s no point driving a clean car if the fuel isn’t green. We’re part of the first integrated energy company in the UK to produce 100% green electricity and are continuing to invest in more onshore and offshore wind farm projects to increase the amount of clean energy available as demand rises.
