The London Borough of Bromley – The first London borough to bring benefits of Gul-e to its residents

The installation of the new Gul-e on-street electric car charging initiative is underway in the borough, with eight addresses taking part in a one-year pilot scheme.

Bromley residents are set to become the first in London to reap the benefits of Gul-e, the UK’s leading electric vehicle (EV) charging solution, created by ODS, Oxford City Council’s trading company. The London Borough of Bromley is the latest local authority to roll-out a Gul-e trial across eight sites starting from Monday, 3 July.

The sites, which are located right across the borough, will help these residents to simply, safely and affordably charge their electric vehicles at their own homes without having to rely on more costly public charging options. Installation across all the sites will take just three days to complete, and data gathered throughout the trial will be invaluable in helping more residents charge from home using their own domestic electricity supply in the future.

The Gul-e pilot scheme provides a secure and convenient home charging option for those who don’t have access to a driveway. This is achieved by the placing of a specially built gully under or beside resident’s garden paths, leading out to the roadside where their cars are parked. This can only be accessed by the resident, ensuring reliable car charging access from their home without causing a trip hazard to the public or adding to street clutter. At home, EV charging is also cheaper than public charging. Cheaper night rates for electricity could encourage owners to charge at night, thereby easing daytime demand on suppliers.

“The best thing about Gul-e is its simplicity. It really is so easy to use,
and was a big part of my decision to buy an EV.”
