3ti installs new public charging points at Riverbridge House


Seven electric vehicle (EV) charge points supplied by 3ti, the UK’s leading designer, installer, funder and operator of Solar Car Parks (SCPs), have opened for public use at Riverbridge House Business Centre, Leatherhead, Surrey.

Originally designed as a convenient workplace charging option for Riverbridge House clients, the charge points are now available to the public and local residents, significantly boosting the EV charging infrastructure in the Mole Valley area.

Riverbridge House Business Centre clients, visitors and the general public will have access to seven charge points, each offering up to 22kW fast charging 24 hours a day, seven days a week on a pay-as-you-go basis.

The charge points provide optimal charge for vehicles parked for two to four hours or longer, such as whilst drivers are at work, shopping or staying locally overnight. Installed and managed by 3ti, which has an office onsite at Riverbridge House, they provide a safe, well-lit, CCTV monitored, reliable charging experience.

“This is a timely opportunity to support clients, local residents and visitors to the area with convenient, accessible and most importantly, reliable EV charging facilities,” says Tim Evans, 3ti’s founder and CEO.

“We have seen the demand for workplace EV charging for our own business and the 30-plus other businesses at Riverbridge House, increase dramatically over the past 12 months. This mirrors the growth of the electric vehicle market as a whole as drivers switch to cleaner, quieter, more economical and less polluting forms of transport.

“But we also know that around half of households in the UK can’t charge an EV at home, which makes the availability of reliable, reasonably priced charging facilities nearby, or at their workplace, a major factor when considering a switch from a petrol or diesel vehicle.

“Making the Riverbridge House charge points available to local residents and visitors to the area makes that decision easier for them. It is a short walk from Leatherhead town centre, so the ability to provide shoppers with a reliable ‘charge while you shop’ experience will also support local retail.”

By adopting a ‘charge where you stop’ mindset, as opposed to ‘stopping to charge’, and by rolling out accessible, efficient destination and workplace charging options, 3ti’s aim is to provide EV charging infrastructure that is accessible to all.

The company hopes the example set by Riverbridge House will encourage other businesses across the UK to take a more collaborative approach to EV charging and adopt similar practices to support their local community.

“We take our commitment to the Leatherhead area incredibly seriously and are proud of our home of 13 years here in the town. We are taking various steps to sustain and improve our leafy surroundings,” added Susan Hook, Director at Riverbridge House Business Centre.

“We have been amazed at how frequently the charge points are in use during the day, and it makes sense to offer EV drivers public access to this facility when spaces are available.

“This approach compliments our recent decision to adopt EMMA AI technology to monitor our energy usage as part of an ongoing commitment to reduce our carbon emissions.”
