Worcester company secures installation accreditation for EV charging points

Rock Power Connections

Worcester company, Rock Power Connections, has secured an official accreditation to install Rolec Electrical Vehicle [EV] charging points.

A specialist in outdoor electrical equipment, Rolec EV is a division of Rolec Services, which specialises in the design and manufacture of EV charging points.

Rock Power Connections can now install a range of fast and rapid chargers to meet the demands of businesses and their customers.

For larger installations, or for companies with restricted spare capacity, the Buckholt Drive-based company can also design and install a new connection from the distribution network.

This support by Rock Power Connections’ additional accreditation with the OLEV (the government’s Office for Low Emissions Vehicles) workplace charging scheme, which provides financial support at £500 a socket for up to 20 sockets. This is a welcome incentive for businesses looking to install work place chargers for their employees or electrify their work fleet.

Emma Chetwynd Jarvis, Electrical Connections Manager for Rock Power Connections, said: “Demand for EV charging points is increasing as companies make the switch from petrol and diesel to electric vehicles.

“Working with Rolec we will be able to keep pace with this increasing demand, while making the process  seamless, by liaising with the Distribution Network Operator [DNO] to obtain a Point of Connection and  designing a solution that meets individual needs.”

Founded in 2012, Rock Power Connections has quickly become one of the UK’s leading Independent Connections Providers, specialising in the design and installation of new and upgraded electricity connections to business, industrial and commercial properties.

Having achieved ‘Small Business of the Year’ at the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce Awards 2019, the family-run organisation aims to increase its market share within the EV Charging space, whilst helping as many businesses and organisations make the switch to EV.
