No driveway? No problem. Kerbo Charge brings on-street charging solution trials across the UK

Kerbo Charge is transforming the EV charging landscape with its through-pavement channels, enabling EV owners to tap into low-cost off-peak tariffs without the need for off-road parking.

Hartlepool is now at the forefront of the EV revolution with the launch of Kerbo Charge’s innovative trial, aimed at empowering drivers without off-street parking to charge their EVs at home.

Following successful rollouts in Stirling and County Durham, the Hartlepool trial marks a significant step forward in addressing the cost and convenience barriers faced by urban EV drivers.

James Pratt, a local EV enthusiast, said: 

“The main problems I faced were cost and convenience.

I had to plan each charging session, find a public charger, plug and wait for it to charge, and then the cost of charging was around five times more than charging at home. It didn’t make getting an EV very attractive.

Now that I have my Kerbo Charge installation I don’t think about charging anymore. There’s no fear of anything being stolen or damaged and I can charge at home as I like.

Yes, you can’t guarantee a parking space in front of your home 100% of the time, but without Kerbo Charge, you can’t charge at home at all. In reality, I only need to top-up my EV once or twice a week, so it works out perfectly.”

Studies show that residents who can charge at home save significantly compared to those relying on public chargers (£680 vs. £1,820 annually), making initiatives like Kerbo Charge essential for wider EV adoption.

With nearly 40% of UK households lacking private parking, the trial aims to level the playing field by providing safe and accessible charging solutions for all residents.

Kieran Bostock, Hartlepool Borough Council’s assistant director for neighbourhood services, said:

“We are pleased to be working with Kerbo Charge on this trial which aims to make it easier and less expensive for residents who don’t have off-street parking to charge electric vehicles.

Anything which encourages the take-up of EVs is to be welcomed, and this initiative reflects the Council’s commitment – as set out in its net zero strategy and action plan – to tackle climate change by reducing its impact on the environment whilst also supporting local communities to cut their emissions.”

Kerbo Charge’s innovative design not only ensures safety and convenience but also boasts a lower carbon footprint compared to traditional metal alternatives.

Prices start at £999, inclusive of fitting and local authority approvals.

For urban dwellers eager to embrace the EV revolution, Kerbo Charge presents a seamless solution, with installations accessible across multiple UK local authorities.
