Ultimately whatever the size of your organisation, the solution that’s best for you, your workforce or visitors must compliment your long term goals and address your short term needs.

What brands of chargepoint do you use

We partner with ALL brands – so you know the advice we give you isn’t biased or powered by targets, but is genuinely the best option for your business needs.

Am I obliged to use you for installation following your assessment and recommendations?

We are a National company covering the whole of the UK, but if you are outside of the UK, please do get in touch as we may still be able to help.

How will I manage usage and costs?

The usage and costs will be factored into your site appraisal and recommendations on how to proceed. You can manage these in a number of ways with online apps – and we’ll recommend the best option for you in your recommendation report.

Do I qualify for any grants?

The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) is a grant by the Office for Low Emissions Vehicles that is available to any business, charity or public authority to reduce the cost of installing electric vehicle chargepoints for staff by up to £14,000. And the beauty of this incentive is that you don’t need to own or have in use any vehicles within the company or workplace – a real incentive that exists to encourage businesses to get on board and can help give you the edge over the competition.

The WCS grant offers £350 per chargepoint socket up to a total of 40 sockets per applicant business.

What EVs are available?

There are a growing number of Electric Vehicles available today. Ranging from small, nip-around-town EV’s like the Smart EQ forTwo, through to the popular Kangoo EV, with the likes of DAF testing their LF Electric and CF Electric innovation trucks to bring to the market, and last-mile delivery options becoming more and more accessible.

Whatever EV you require, we’ll be able to suggest the best option for your business needs.

I needed a cost effective solution for my small business – it was a pleasure working with Tim and the team to work out what was best for me. The whole process from start to finish was pleasantly painless – which is not what I was expecting!

Jasmine Mancey,LSM Administration

I was hired to find an expert to sit on a panel for a large firm operating in the sustainable energy space. Not only did Tim deliver on the panel, but he shined as a real source of credible, research-backed knowledge. My client was so pleased with the outcomes and I have already recommended TCC to several other clients in the EV space.

Lizzie Gray,Boost and Bloom

We needed an independent voice of knowledge and reason when it came to our EV strategy for the business. We had been given conflicting advice, and we had to factor in not just cost, but ROI and also getting the right equipment first time round. Connect was invaluable in the options they presented to us, and they were able to help us navigate the decisions. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone who is thinking about installing chargers for their business or employees.
