Dear [DECISION MAKER],

I hope you are well. My name is [YOUR NAME] and I am currently working for [COMPANY NAME] at [LOCATION].

I [RECENTLY PURCHASED / PLAN TO PURCHASE] an electric vehicle (EV). The ability to plug-in to charge and get on with my working day at [COMPANY NAME] would be a huge benefit for my colleagues and I who travel to work via EV.

Electric cars are becoming increasingly popular in the UK. With the government’s pledge to ban all sales of new petrol and diesel cars by 2035, EV uptake is further encouraged. By 2025, it will likely be the dominant mode of propulsion for cars.  Due to the recent changes in BiK rates there are great incentives for more and more company cars to also become electric.

With this in mind, the ability to charge at work will become far more important.  Charging will be a valuable asset for [COMPANY NAME] wanting to attract and retain top tier employees in the near future. Charging infrastructure would also benefit guests and company car drivers, they would be able to conveniently top up their vehicles as and when they need to. 

EV charging can benefit many different people at [ COMPANY NAME] -not only drivers. Workplace chargepoints will also show a clear commitment to carbon reduction within [COMPANYS NAME] and will support the progress towards reaching sustainability targets.

The OLEV workplace scheme grant has been extended to help offset the cost of installing this infrastructure reducing installation costs by up to £14,000. Pod Point (one of the largest chargepoint providers in the UK) provides 
more information on this grant on their website and will claim it on your behalf.

For reasons outlined above, I hope you will consider offering EV charging at [COMPANY NAME]. Pod Point will manage the whole process and will advise on the most suitable solution.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or would like to discuss the matter further. You can also submit a workplace enquiry with Pod Point straight away 
here.

Thank you in advance for your help and I look forward to hearing back from you.
 
Kind regards,
[YOUR NAME]
