Furthermore, Indra’s charger offers solar matching and intelligent off-peak charging to minimise cost and maximise renewable energy usage for EV drivers.
The partnership means that Starla Energy can provide its car OEM, fleet, lease and dealer partners with a hassle-free, home EV charging hardware and installation service at point of sale.
Speaking about the partnership, Leighton King, Chief Commercial Officer at Indra says:
“We’re delighted to be partnering with Starla Energy to supply our Smart PRO EV charger to its commercial vehicle customers. Starla Energy is an ambitious UK business that shares our vision to make EV ownership as straightforward, rewarding and sustainable as possible. By installing our high-quality chargers, Starla Energy can provide its customers with an elegant but robust charging solution that enables users to optimise their charging schedules and tariffs to help them save money and the planet."
Martyn Broadhead, Commercial Director at Starla comments:
“Indra has a great reputation within the developing EV smart tech sector based upon the excellent Smart PRO range which we believe to be the best pound-for-pound charger in the market. Its ability to take power from Solar PV systems as well as the grid is a big factor for us.
“We have already successfully delivered and installed Indra chargers to our customer base, and we look forward to delivering thousands more. The fact that Indra is UK-based is also in line with our policy to use homegrown solutions wherever possible – we want UK-created green technologies to drive UK market adoption to net zero.”
Developed in-house using Indra’s unrivalled smart charging expertise and experience, the Smart PRO has been built with EV drivers in mind.
The Smart PRO includes optimised charging schedules for off-peak charging, enabling access to renewable energy when it’s at its cheapest, automatic software updates and solar compatibility with PV panels. Indra’s cutting-edge tariff integration technology also enables end users to access the cheapest and greenest tariffs, including Type of Use tariffs.
