Innovative and popular EV charging from Exeter

“Gridserve’s Electric Super Hubs at Moto Rugby and Moto Exeter topped the list.”


Two years ago, the Co-Charger app came to Exeter:

We enable people and businesses with chargers to make them available to their neighbourhoods.

It continues to do well:

You could say the Co Charger App is the latest development in community empowerment! As electric vehicles become more common place, there is an increasing need for additional charging points, especially for vehicle owners who need to park on the road. If you have a charging point at your home, the Co Charger App, makes it possible for you to help charge your neighbour’s cars and make some money on the side. This innovative idea is the brainchild of Devon businessperson Joel Teague who launched the Co Charger App to connect neighbours and communities. This new platform enables anyone who has an electric car charger, whether motorists, business or community building to share them with neighbours who don’t.

Meanwhile, new EV charging points are popping up:

Gridserve’s Exeter Super Hub saw a 240% increase in EV traffic on site it the first three months of its operation.

And again, Exeter is on the map:

Gridserve has the top two charging locations in the UK, by usage, and three of the top five according to the EV charging app Zap-Map. The rankings reflect the second quarter of 2022 and cover around 70% of the UK’s public EV charging network, excluding Tesla Superchargers. Gridserve’s Electric Super Hubs at Moto Rugby and Moto Exeter topped the list, followed by MFG EV Power’s hub in South London, the BP Pulse site at Hammersmith and another Gridserve site in Braintree, which was its first Electric Forecourt.
