It must be easy and convenient to drive an electric car in Svendborg.
Therefore, SEF’s four charging stations are now being upgraded and thus even faster.
At the same time, a two-year trial period ends with free charging: “We have made Svendborg an attractive city to load in – now we are taking the next step and making it even more efficient to choose a sustainable mode of transport,” says SEF’s marketing director, Claus Holm Andersen.
Until two years ago, Svendborg was not a particularly attractive city to charge its electric car in. But with the installation of four charging stations in 2019, Svendborg is now one of the cities in Denmark with very good opportunities to charge its electric car in public locations.
“The whole idea with the four charging stations has been to give people the desire to drive an electric car and support a more sustainable mode of transport,” says Claus Holm Andersen, marketing director at SEF A / S and mentions that it taps into SEF’s overall purpose and values to contribute to the green transition.
The four electric charging stations in question can be found at SG Hallen, Voldgade, Ramsherred and Rådhusgården.
Free charging has given a boost
That the first two years have been free has been an attempt to arouse people’s curiosity about electric cars and make it easy for them to make a greener choice.
“We want to be at the forefront of green energy in head and make it more accessible for people to choose electric cars. Therefore, we chose extraordinarily to do it for free for the first two years, ”says Claus Holm Andersen and mentions that the two years of free charging were originally only intended for free for one year, but after one year SEF chose to extend the period by another year. to further appreciate electric motoring in South Funen.
This has undoubtedly helped to make South Funen more attractive to both locals and tourists with electric cars.
“We have made Svendborg an attractive city to let in. We can see this on various electric car platforms, where Svendborg gets very positive publicity. But we can also see it in the very increasing consumption we have on the four charging stations. And that is a really good sign, ”says Claus Holm Andersen.
Faster and more efficient charging
As of February 1, the four stands will be upgraded and thus even faster. But it also means that an era of free charging is over. The price matches the market price of the rest of the country’s public fast and lightning chargers, but if you are a customer of SEF, the price is halved, and if you have a charging box through SEF, the price is further minimized.
“We think it has been a really good investment to do it for free for the first two years. A help to get started driving an electric car and a way in which we have shown the way to rational use of energy. But we also expect that people can see the sense in the new payment model, and that it is a competitive way to charge their car quickly, ”explains Claus Holm Andersen and mentions that everyone naturally has the opportunity to become an electricity customer at SEF and thus gaining access to the low prices of the four lightning chargers. SG Hallen’s charging station is the fastest and has been continuously upgraded. It is now at 150 kW, where the three other charging stations used to be at 50 kW and now are at 75 kW.
“That means people can charge their cars noticeably faster. And everything else being equal, it will have the effect that we can help more people leave their cars. All in all, something that makes it more attractive to drive an electric car in Svendborg. ”
The payment solution is implemented in collaboration with the Danish technology company Monta. Monta is an innovative company that has developed a 100 percent. digital solution for managing both private and public charging stations. Charging at the charging stations can either take place via the Monta app or via other payment methods such as credit card. The Monta app has a full overview of your charges and payments and at the same time access to 150,000 charging stations throughout Europe, so you only need one solution to charge your electric or plug-in hybrid car.
