Electric Highway App

You’ll need to download the Electric Highway app in order to use our charging network.

As well as giving you access to all of our pumps, the app shows you a live feed of the entire network. So you can see the location and availability of each pump, and better plan your journey.

The app also lets you track the progress of your charging session, so you can see when your vehicle is fully charged just by looking at your phone.

One simple app gives you access to the entire Electric Highway network – nearly 300 electricity pumps across Britain. Here's how it works:

  • Free charging for Ecotricity energy customers (subject to our fair usage policy)
  • £6 for a 30 minute session for non-Ecotricity energy customers
  • Sign in with your Eco ID or your Ecotricity energy account details
  • Create a new Eco ID – if you don't have an energy account
  • Use as a guest user – no sign-in needed, just add your credit card details each time you charge your car


This app requires Android 4.0 or later. This app requires iOS 7.1 or later.
