Electric Highway App

Download the Electric Highway app and you’ll have access to our entire charging network.

It’s easy to charge up on the Electric Highway – all you need to do is download the Electric Highway app and you’ll have access to our entire car 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.

Download the app and you're ready to go...

  • Maximum 45 minutes charge per session
  • 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
