Our partnership with the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association
7th Apr 2020 Danny Morgan
Ohme and the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association are working together to help bring cheaper home charging to the UK’s EV taxi drivers. As Ohme's installation partner, Smart Home Charge is proud to support this project.
The Licensed Taxi Drivers Association (LTDA) helps improve the livelihood of taxi drivers across the country and is now working with our partner Ohme to bring cheaper home charging to its members as they look to save money on their vehicle running costs.
With more than 2000 electric taxis in operation in London, many cabbies are already saving on running costs. But there are even more cost savings to be had by "smart charging", which can help bring the cost per mile down to as low as 2p by charging using off-peak tariffs and time-of-use tariffs.
The best way to do this is through the Ohme Intelligent Wall Charger. Luckily, LTDA members who have moved to an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle can get an exclusive discount on the Ohme Intelligent Wall Charger helping taxi drivers save on the cost of a home charge point installation.
In addition, the Ohme software can sync with the driver’s home energy tariff and automatically charge when electricity rates are cheap potentially saving hundreds of pounds per year on EV charging costs.
As Ohme’s preferred installation partner for this project, Smart Home Charge is looking forward to helping thousands of taxi drivers save money and make the move to electric and other low-emission vehicles.
