Case Study
Watford FC Training Ground & Stadium

Watford Football Club required EV chargerpoints at their training ground in response to employee and visitors demand. The club had installed four KEBA P30 22kW chargers

Watford Football Club required EV charge points at their stadium and training ground in response to employee and visitors demand. The club had installed four KEBA P30 22kW charge points.
Existing charge point removed as the club had no sight of the electricity being consumed.State of the art security feature installed providing personalised RFID cards to all users.
Bespoke branding designed and applied to charge point pedestal.
The club is now using Rapid Charge’s secure software portal to control access to EV charging, monitor usage and have the option to set custom electricity tariffs and recharge electricity usage. Rapid Charge’s Charge point Monitoring Team can monitor the LAN connected charge points and remotely perform simple fixes and issue down the line updates. This reduces the need for on-site maintenance and minimises inconvenience.

Rapid Charge, who offer a fully managed service from initial consultation through to surveying, installation and maintenance, were able to provide a state of the art charging unit that enables a secure and tracked usage arrangement.  The club is extremely proud of it’s brand and we were able to provide them with a bespoke designed charging pedestal to mount the chargers. 
To prevent the parking bays being occupied by petrol or diesel drivers, Rapid Charge worked closely with The Club to design and create a dedicated EV Zone, with painted bays and clear signage notifying employees and visitors that the parking spaces were for EV drivers only.

The club has a clear view of who is using the charge points, by using their personal secure login credentials to Rapid Charge’s back office, so they can pass on electricity costs to visitors or employees, if so required. 

Drivers have praised the clearly marked and signed EV Zone, which has meant the bays are seldom blocked by non-charging drivers.  
Furthermore, KEBA’s charge points are internet enabled, either via LAN, WiFi or 4G, which means Rapid Charge’s in-house charge point monitoring team is able to troubleshoot many problems remotely, often before clients are aware of any issues. Problems can be resolved more efficiently, compared with ‘dumb’ charge points, as the need for on-site maintenance is reduced. 
Using Rapid Charge’s back office , the club can set custom tariffs and monitor usage of the charge points.
