Park, Charge and Ride at Essex

Electric Blue, in partnership with Essex County Council has provided four charging points, two at Chelmer Valley Park & Ride, and two at Sandon Park & Ride.

Pay as you go charging - pay only for what you use

No connection fee. No subscription fee. No minimum spend

Each site has two charge points, and each charger can charge two cars simultaneously.

The chargers are 7kW Fast chargers, and will typically give an Electric Vehicle a full charge in around 5 hours, and a plug in hybrid even less.

At Electric Blue, we think it’s fair to pay for what you use, and only what you use, so we only charge you 25p per kW.


Getting Started

Electric Blue iOS and Android Apps are available from their respective App Store and Play Store. Just search for Electric Blue, download the App, and install like you would do for any other App.

  1. Once downloaded, you can use the map to navigate to one of our chargers, or if you are already there, simply enter the charge point ID number (displayed on the front of each charger 38-XXXXX) or scan the QR code on the charger.
  2. Select the ‘pay as you go’ option (‘sign in as an Electric Blue user’ is for some of our private members), and create yourself an account.
  3. Once you’re signed up, plug your vehicle in, follow the instructions on the App, pressing the “start charge” button, and away you go.
  4. To stop the charge, just press “Stop”! You’ll then be sent a receipt and your card will be charged for the electricity you have used.
  5. The second time through should be much quicker, as the App will remember who you are. Just select your charger, complete the security check, plug in and press “start charge”.
