Rolec's EV StreetCharge Wins Product Of The Year AwardNovember 20th 2017
Rolec EV is delighted that its combined streetlight and EV charge point solution, EV StreetCharge, has won the Highway Electrical Association's (HEA’S) prestigious Product of the Year award.
The award for EV StreetCharge, which is jointly manufactured by Rolec EV, BEI Lighting and Fabrikat, was announced during an event at the Celtic Manor Hotel, in Newport, Wales, to celebrate 'the best of the best' in the highway electrical sector.
The Product of the Year Award recognises the leaders in design and manufacture in the industry, with the winner chosen by a panel of judges after consideration has been given to a product’s key design aspects, benefits to customers, innovation, and physical aspects.
Kieron Alsop, Managing Director of Rolec EV, commented: "Our EV StreetCharge lighting posts are proving the way forward as the perfect solution to the mass deployment of in-situ EV charging points across the UK.
“EV StreetCharge is a conventional LED streetlight equipped with a Mode 3 EV charging point which enables EV drivers to charge their vehicles easily using their mobile phone - without the necessity to pay subscriptions fees, membership fees or connection fees.
“Users simply pull up to the streetlight and charge, just like drivers of an internal combustion engine vehicle would do at a petrol station. The EV driver pays for their charge online using their mobile phone and secure payment system, such as Visa, MasterCard, PayPal or American Express.”
The HEA is widely acknowledged as one of the largest and most influential bodies in the highways, lighting and electrical sectors.
They describe their awards as the highlight of the industry’s calendar, stating: “The Awards celebrate excellence from the industry’s top performers and recognise the valuable contribution made by employees of HEA Members. Winning is not easy.”
