Workplace EV charging for business owners

Hive Stores Logo

As a coffee enthusiast, I couldn't pass up the chance to shadow our skilled EV installers as they installed the new Hydra Cubus at Hive Stores. This unique café bar, deli, and shop not only serves top-notch speciality coffee but also offers an array of delightful treats and has a treasure trove of unique items for sale.



What truly sets Hive Stores apart is the commitment of its owners, Steven & Gareth, to reduce waste. Their dedication to upcycling and waste minimisation is not just a philosophy but a profound way of life. This is reflected in the unique ranges they stock in their shop, and they proudly display an award for the ‘Best Dressed Window’ by the Royal Horticultural Society for their theme on recycling. Their recent investment in a greener future was an electric vehicle, which will provide added benefits of reduced mileage costs and tax savings.


Once they had made the decision to purchase an electric vehicle, the next step was to install a charge point at work. After careful consideration and reviewing various charge point installers, they came across Charge-M8 and were reassured by our 5-star reviews. We presented a range of charging options, but the Hydra Cubus stood out. Its sleek design, user-friendly App, and quick charging facility with the RFID keyring tags made it the perfect choice, providing them with a reliable and efficient charging solution. Moreover, they were able to claim a generous government grant, which reduced the cost of the installed charge point.


Now, while Stephen and Gareth are busy energising the people of Altrincham with coffee, their electric vehicle is being energised more cost effectively at work.


>More and more small business owners are reaping the benefits of electric vehicles and workplace charging. With the government grant, the cost of adding a charging facility has become highly affordable, making it a smart and cost-effective choice for your business.
