Preconnect 100% of your CAR PARK with plug-and-play Electric Vehicle Charge Point (EVCP) infrastructure designed for MDUs

Take CHARGE with the easiest EV charging platform.

One SIMPLE, SCALABLE and fully MANAGED solution - just charging

EV Charging is considered the FOURTH most important factor when searching for somewhere to live or work, behind only cost, location and connectivity.

As the world makes the switch to electric vehicles, the demand for EV charge points is rapidly increasing. Landlords will be expected to offer professionally managed charging solutions alongside existing services.

CONVENIENCE

The most convenient place to charge is always at HOME or WORK.

EXPECTATION

More and more occupiers are not only looking for, but expect an EASY and FLEXIBLE charging solution at home or work.

EXCEEDED

OceanCharge provides commercial and residential landlords with a FULLY MANAGED and FUTURE-PROOFED charging solution.

Introducing Preconnect™ by Ocean Charge

Our Preconnect solution has been specifically DESIGNED for LANDLORDS and DEVELOPERS.

Preconnect provides a COST NEUTRAL and reliable, 100% EV charging solution for residential MDUs, commercial MDUs and mixed-use sites.

A Rapidly Changing World

Battery Electric Vehicles

Over a quarter of all NEW VEHICLES sold in the UK last year were electric vehicles with new petrol and diesel car sales set to end by 2030.

Tipping Point

We’re FAST APPROACHING a tipping point in terms of EV uptake and expectations concerning access to the underlying charging infrastructure.

Occupier Expectations

Occupiers will soon be reluctant to move into buildings without a PROFESSIONAL EV charging solution, or one that doesn’t PRIORITISE SUSTAINABILITY.

The CHALLENGE of choosing the RIGHT charging SOLUTION for landlords

With the increasing popularity of electric vehicles, landlords are facing a new challenge: how to provide charging solutions for their occupiers. However, with so many different charging options available, it can be difficult for landlords to know which solution is right for their building and tenants.

The PROBLEM

Landlords, developers and managing agents are approaching EV infrastructure by either:

  1. Proactively installing a handful of dedicated charging bays, resulting in
    • a loss of valuable parking revenue
    • a poor occupier experience
  2. Allowing occupiers to find and implement their own solution, resulting in
    • health and safety concerns from poorly maintained and unmanaged  infrastructure
    • a legacy infrastructure headache and problem when the occupier  vacates, or
  3. Completely restricting access to charging whilst deciding what the right EV strategy is for their property, resulting in
    • Unhappy occupiers and a reduction in property appeal

Landlord & Developer Checklist

Landlords need to future-proof their buildings by installing charging solutions that will meet the needs of tenants now and in the future.

Landlords need to choose a charging solution that is scalable and can be easily expanded as demand for charging increases.

Landlords need to choose a charging solution that is cost-effective and does not require a large upfront investment.
