Charging network provider Mer increases prices by up to 20 percent 

Shafiq Abidin


Electric car charging network provider Mer has increased its charging point prices by as much as 20 percent as the charging industry grapples with a steep increase in wholesale electricity costs. Mer is a franchise of the Norwegian renewable energy supplier Statkraft, and says the price increases are to keep in line with the inflation to wholesale energy prices, and are necessary to allow it to stay committed to installing the UK’s best electric car charging infrastructure in a sustainable manner.  

22 kW AC Chargers:
Registered users - £0.37/kWh (+4p)
Ad hoc - £0.39/kWh (+4p)

25 – 50 kW DC Chargers:
Registered users - £0.46/kWh (+11p)
Ad hoc - £0.49/kWh (+10p)
Contactless - £0.49/kWh (+10p)

75 kW + DC Chargers:
Registered users - £0.52/kWh (+11p)
Ad hoc - £0.55/kWh (+8p)
Contactless - £0.55/kWh (+8p) 

The move follows similar increases from the UK’s biggest charge point operators. bp Pulse, Instavolt, Osprey and Gridserve Electric Highway have all been forced to increase user costs due to the unprecedented rise in electricity costs. 

Mer rapid chargers will cost up to 55p per kWh following the latest price increase
