Leeds based electric vehicle charge point operator (CPO) Alfa Power, is delighted to announce a partnership with Payter, a pioneer and leader in the field of contactless NFC (Near-Field Communication) and cashless technology. This partnership will see Alfa Power offer contactless solutions for the first time on their new 22kW AC fast chargers. Plans are also well underway to introduce contactless payment on their current range of fast, semi-rapid and rapid chargers in the coming future. The addition of contactless payment will see Alfa Power become one of the first CPO's in the UK to offer contactless payment on AC charging infrastructure, while still offering their standard payment methods via the My Alfa Power app or with their RFID fob. This provides EV drivers with a variety of simple ways to pay for their charge.
Ben Stocker, VP of Global Sales for Payter, expressed his delight in the partnership, “Alfa Power is a forward-thinking CPO with a fast-growing network of chargers. Enabling their new AC and future DC chargers with Payter's Cashless Payment Technology will open up acceptance of Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Apple Pay, and Google Pay providing EV-drivers freedom of choice”
Varun Gandhi, Alfa Power’s CTO, echoed Ben’s sentiment, “Alfa Power has been searching for a long time to find the perfect partner for our contactless rollout. Payter was a clear winner once we heard the seamless integration with AC charging infrastructure. Alfa Power will continue to be at the forefront of the electric vehicle charging industry with more exciting plans coming soon”
Alfa Power has continued to push the boundaries of the eMoblity industry since their conception in 2017, being the first CPO in the UK to materialise and roll out 60kW, 100kW and 120kW rapid chargers capable of charging 4 electric vehicles simultaneously. Their nationwide public charging network is formed of fast and rapid chargers which are situated in prime locations throughout the UK.
