British online used car dealer Cinch has announced a deal with green technology company Myenergi to help provide electric vehicle (EV) charging to more British motorists, according to a statement from Myenergi.

The deal was launched at the British Motor Show and will see the two companies collaborate to provide discounts on buying and installing Myenergi’s Zappi product and to simplify the process.

Myenergi’s Zappi smart charger is grid compatible as standard. It also has optional charging modes that use 100% green energy that is generated by consumers’ own renewable power. This means that drivers can normally charge their EVs at home for no cost and without relying on the grid.

The companies claim each user can save up to £280 ($356 U.S.) on the cost and installation of both tethered and untethered models of the smart device which allows homeowners with the right equipment to charge their cars using electricity generated by their own home and is also compatible with the U.K.’s energy grid.

Myenergi is based in Grimsby in the north-west of England. The company recently cut 100 jobs from its 400-strong team after a growth period reached a peak, partly due to a slowdown in EV sales. This new deal aims to help boost sales. The company also has products for home battery storage and to divert self-generated energy back into consumers’ homes.

“With the 2030 ban on selling new diesel and petrol cars looming, collaboration is key to help the U.K. lead the way in electrification,” said Abhishek Sampat, head of electric vehicles at Constellation Automotive Group, the parent company of Cinch.

“Our partnership with Myenergi will help to further accelerate EV adoption and provide a cost-effective way for our customers to access the market’s best eco-smart charging tech. Drivers can now buy a car, organise delivery, specify an eco-smart EV charger and coordinate installation in one place. This makes the whole process quick and seamless.”
