Leading electric vehicle charging software company, Rightcharge, has launched its latest technology that allows fleets to cover the costs of an employee’s home charging by making payments directly to the employee’s energy account, regardless of their supplier.  The service is the first part of the Rightcharge Electric Fuel Card, which is being launched in stages this year and will soon offer a public charge card to access over 30 networks plus workplace charging integrations.

Rightcharge has achieved a technical breakthrough that allows drivers to digitally link their home energy account to the app. As a result, electricity rates are read automatically at any time of day, regardless of whether the employee has a smart meter. The Rightcharge system instantly detects any changes to a driver’s tariff and no manual intervention is required from the driver. This delivers a significantly more reliable and easy-to-use service for both the drivers and their employers. 

Home charging is measured accurately via integrations with popular home charge points and connected vehicle integrations, which automate the experience for the majority of users. Additionally, for those drivers whose charge point or vehicle is not yet compatible, Rightcharge offers a manual upload option, similar to submitting a meter reading, so that they can still benefit from direct-to-energy-supplier payments.

Fraud protection and multiple electric vehicle features are being rolled out soon and Rightcharge is developing a split-savings feature later in the year, which will allow fleets to incentivise their employees in return for switching to a low-rate EV tariff; potentially saving fleets over £1,000 per year.

The Rightcharge Electric Fuel Card is available to new customers today. Fleet administrators can register on the Rightcharge app and invite their drivers to join. Once registered, both administrators and drivers will have access to detailed data on charging activity, costs, and carbon emissions through separate portals. The home charging plan is available for £9.99 per driver per month. Businesses can take advantage of a 30-day trial by signing up today at

Charlie Cook, CEO of Rightcharge said:

“We’re delighted to launch our home charging payments solution, delivering a seamless and automated way for businesses to manage home EV charging costs. No more confusing expenses or reimbursement hassles. And no out-of-pocket costs for drivers. Just simple, unified payments that shortcut the complexities of fleet electrification. This is the future of EV fleet management and with our public charge card and workplace integrations still to come, we’re just getting started. We look forward to supporting businesses and drivers towards a more emission-free future.”

Rightcharge’s home charging payments functionality is available now, and its Electric fuel card for public charging will be coming soon. Combined with workplace charging data, the service will provide Fleet managers with 360-degree visibility of employee charging costs. 

When Rightcharge’s public charge card arrives, it will allow drivers to pay with company funds at over 30 different public charging networks, unlocking access to more than 38,000 public chargers.
