Big Zero Report 2023

British housebuilders Redrow has joined forces with Pod Point to install charging infrastructure for electric vehicles (Evs) at new build properties across England and Wales.

They have signed a two-year partnership agreement, with Pod Point supplying home charging points for Redrow’s residential developments.

The agreement also extends to some of Redrow’s offices and sales centres that need retrofitting for charge points, supporting the company’s ambition to have an all-electric car fleet by the end of 2025.

The latest partnership follows legislation that came into force in June 2022, under which all new residential developments in England must have at least one 7kW charge point for every residence with a parking space.

Stephen Horridge, Head of Procurement at Redrow, which builds more than 5,700 new homes every year, said: “We are excited to partner with Pod Point to further enhance the sustainability of our developments.

“Pod Point’s industry-leading products, expertise and supply chain security make them the ideal partner to meet the rapidly growing demand we’re seeing from customers for EV charging.”
