GoPlugable chooses Ohme as its official smart charger partner

GoPlugable has chosen Cork-based dynamic EV charging company Ohme as its official home charger partner in Ireland.

GoPlugable is Ireland’s platform for locating, reserving and sharing home charging points for EV drivers. Enhancing convenience for drivers and improving the charging infrastructure, GoPlugable was established in 2023 to solve the problem of Irish EV drivers who don’t have easy access to home-charging.

Owners of Ohme chargers in Ireland can become a GoPlugable host and earn money by sharing their home EV charger when it’s not in use. Ohme customers will also gain an exclusive offer when they sign up on the Goplugable platform, details of which are available on the link below.

“We are delighted to announce Ohme as our official home charging partner,” said GoPlugable CEO, Maebh Reynolds. “With Ohme the fastest-growing smart EV charging company in Ireland, it’s great for us to be working with them to help with the transition to greater EV adoption in all forms.”

“GoPlugable is a really exciting new company for Ireland, helping to grow EV adoption and make it easier for drivers to make the switch,” said David Watson, Ohme CEO. “This collaboration will help Ohme customers not only to get paid from renting their charger out to other EV users, but to help play a part in growing the EV public charging network.”

Ohme’s range of smart chargers can connect seamlessly with all of Ireland’s electricity suppliers and automatically adjust an EV’s charging for drivers to take advantage of off-peak tariffs.

For instance, charging a 77kWh Volkswagen ID.3 from zero to 100 per cent with an Ohme EV charger on an off-peak tariff, such as SSE Airtricity’s Night Boost*, could cost just €7.34 for an electric range of more than 574kms (WLTP Combined). Over the course of a year and 10,000kms of driving that would equate to running costs of less than €130. Ohme also offers drivers the option to charge their car when renewable energy generation is at its highest, further lowering their CO2 impact.

Ohme is the official EV charger provider for the Volkswagen Group, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo Cars and Polestar in Ireland and has worked with a number of other partners including Donegal County Council and Iarnród Éireann. Ohme has also been named as Fast Track Company of the Year in the 2023 UK Green Business Awards as well as Best Chargepoint Manufacturer in the 2024 Irish EV awards.

* SSE Airtricity Night Boost tariff – 9.53c/kWh
