Plugged in Midlands is now expanded and part of the POLAR national network which is operated by Chargemaster Plc. A Plugged in Midlands (PiM) member can now access the largest network of public charging stations nationwide with a single card - the Plugged in Midlands charging card.
Chargemaster Plc is the largest provider of public charging stations across the UK and further charging points are being added to the network each month both across the Midlands and nationwide. Availability information is displayed on the live map where this is known as well as other information such as cost of charging, rate of charge and type of socket. The majority of charging points are free to use.
A PiM membership allows you to charge at over 5000 locations across the UK for just £7.85 a month (inc VAT) and with three months free. Although around 80% of our charging points are free to use, there will be some chargeable posts. These will cost just 9p per kWh excluding VAT - this is cheaper than the average cost of charging at home. You can see whether a charging post is free or chargeable using our map here.
Plugged in Midlands members also get access to the POLAR EV Experience programme whereby they can have one week’s free use of a fleet of exciting new evs including the stunning BMW i8 and ground breaking Teslas. Click here for further information.
