The Trojan lance works with flat and flush 22kW chargepoints that are set into the pavement. They are low profile when in use, and leave no pavement clutter afterwards. The lance gives you the power to reduce not just your CO2 footprint and air pollution, but also the impact of the chargers themselves on your local streetscape.
This is better for your community as it enables us to install on the vast majority of residential streets, getting you as close to charging as possible, to deliver maximum convenience and eliminating the need for 'charge miles' - driving elsewhere to simply get a charge. The technology comes in two types: the publicly powered Hub of 15 chargepoints in adjacent roadside bays; or the single chargepoint powered by, and right outside, your home.
Our cloud arbitrated charging gives you to the flexibility to choose charging preferences such as Smart charging overnight at the cheapest cost, or as fast as possible at peak time at a higher cost, if desired. Close and convenient, competitive costs, and clutterless. If you want all three for EV charging on your street then read further to see how you can help.
Electric vehicle charging companies like Trojan Energy cannot install on your street without permission from the relevant local authority. EV chargepoint installations are typically managed by the transport planning or sustainability teams at local councils because they have the responsibility to govern and maintain pavements.
Councils record every request for chargepoints and try to respond to demand. Your council may not have to absorb any cost for installing the charger (although they may choose to) but there is a complicated planning process to work through, and their resources are often stretched.
As the UK switch to EVs gathers pace, the increasing demand for charging is making this challenge harder for councils because programmes have to be bigger, so it can take some time. There are three actions you can take which could accelerate chargepoints appearing on your street:
Contact your Council, transport planning team (or whoever is responsible for on-street EV charging in your area), and request an EV charger on your street. Many (but not all) authorities have webforms for this. You can suggest our solution but your council will reserve the right to install something different. This is the single most important action. Without this, your council won't know where to install right now, even if they do have a strategy for a wide rollout.
Fill in your details on our own 'register your interest' page. This logs your information in our secure database. We will not use this system for anything other than consolidating requests and communicating with councils to show them the demand. If and when the council does allow us to install in your area, we will let you know.
Ask other members of your community to raise their own council requests where possible, and also to register their interest with us. This will accelerate chargepoints appearing in your area, and helps us to understand where to concentrate our efforts.
