Urban Charging Partners with UK Golf Federation

2.08pm 6th March 2020 - Corporate

The UK Golf Federation has added Urban Charging to its portfolio of elite corporate partners.

Doug Poole, CEO UK Golf Federation, says, “The world we live in is changing rapidly and more electric car models are being introduced to the market every month. The UK Golf Federation is excited to put itself at the forefront of the legislation requirements helping to create a cleaner environment.

“Thanks to our new corporate partners Urban Charging, you can set a competitive pricing structure which will enable you to recover all of the costs associated with the installation and

day-to-day operation of the EV charging points. This will generate a whole new revenue stream for your business and enhance incremental spend, as well as increase footfall at the club.

“It is predicted that by the year 2021, there will be over a million electric vehicles on our roads. This shift will affect consumer behaviour which will be increasingly controlled by the availability and location of charging facilities and drivers wanting to ensure their vehicles are topped up at all times.

“This opportunity is very relevant to golf clubs. With more cars needing to be charged, golf facilities are prime locations for members, visitors and passing customers to have sufficient time to charge their vehicles. Any location where a consumer has a dwell time of over 30 minutes will clearly benefit from installing charging points.

“They offer a low-cost monthly leasing plan and management software, which allows you to control who can access the charging points and the pricing structure where you can review live usage through your own online portal.”
