From next month we are doing something different with EV.
Replenishh, launching in October, is designed to make EV installations a more straightforward process for procurement teams as well as homeowners and electrical contractors, and builds on the EV expertise Rapid has acquired over the last few years as a supplier of EV charging stations.
Jim Rugg, EV Technical and Specifications Manager at Rapid, gives some idea of what to expect from Replenishh. “We felt it wasn’t enough to just stock the products – EV can be a confusing new market, and there needed to be more guidance and information available, particularly for procurement teams working on installation projects. This is new technology and a ‘one size fits all’ approach does not work.
“By ‘smart’ we do not just mean charging stations able to receive and process data, which in July became mandatory as part of the OLEV Homecharge scheme. It also represents everything about the Replenishh service – Specify, Manage, Analyse, Responsive and Timely. What support is available to purchasing teams if they are given an EV charging project? What accessories and back office products are required to meet appropriate safety standards? These are the kind of questions addressed by Replenishh."
“For example, we have an online configuration tool which effectively maps out an EV installation for the user, identifying how many, what type and power of charging station is best for them, as well as their back office system requirements.”
“Replenishh also offers a comprehensive range of products, from switchgear to cabling, trunking to distribution boards, co-ordinates OLEV-approved training courses and commissions site surveys for prospective customers. Customers will also have access to special pricing, 60-day credit terms and comprehensive technical and sales support.”
