Ancon introduces free Electric Vehicle charge points

As electricity is a clean energy source, electric cars are widely regarded as a more environmentally friendly alternative to petrol, diesel or hybrid cars as they do not emit fumes.

Ancon is encouraging the use of this new technology by the introduction of free Electric Vehicle (EV) charge points for its employees and visitors at its UK facilities.

There are four charge points at Ancon’s head office and main UK manufacturing site in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, and two at its production facility in Deeside, Flintshire.

Visitors should ask at reception on arrival for information on how to register for the charge points and the ‘Pod Point’ app!

Whilst Ancon’s charge points are part of a national network, they are only available to approved registered users. Registration is a quick and simple process.

The system is operated via an app. Most EV users will have the ‘Pod Point’ app already but if not it can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play. Once users are registered with Ancon, they receive an email with an activation link and once the car is plugged in they start the electric charge via the app.
