UK electric vehicles (EVs) drivers will soon be able to pay a single bill for all their charging, regardless of the location and the network they use.

In a bid to address ‘long-standing’ complaints from EV drivers who don’t find a common way to pay across different networks, Octopus Energy Group has launched its Electric Juice Network.

The new project, which aims to encourage the further uptake of EVs, will allow drivers to pay with their Octopus account across multiple partners’ charging networks with all costs appearing on a single bill.

The company says the Electric Juice Network will start with one charging partner, Char.gy.

Greg Jackson, CEO and Founder of Octopus Energy, says: “EV drivers have rightly long-complained that public charge points can be a real hassle, and it’s hard to keep track of costs, as every network runs on a unique app or card basis.

“Octopus’s Electric Juice Network doesn’t just consolidate charging costs, it adds them to your Octopus Energy bill if you’re an existing customer. For non-Octopus customers, you can still use the service to ensure you’re able to track (and pay) in one simple way.”
