Arrow downWhat charging infrastructure do I need as a business?

LeasePlan’s consultancy framework can help you decide what you’ll need – it will differ from business t; business. Maybe your vehicle use means access to the public network is all you  need. Or we may need to help you with some home and workplace chargers.

It’s not just installing physical chargers, you will also want to track and report on your fleet’s electric charging.

LeasePlan’s Start Electric services allow you to consolidate your charging costs through a mix of connected charging points, as well as detailed reporting on when and where and at what cost each car is recharging.
