Electric Vehicle Charging


Electric vehicle charging pointThere are two electric vehicle (EV) charging points installed at Penryn Campus, for staff and students to use.

They are located in Car Park A.

You must register on our web portal to buy a card and start using the facilities.


  • Your GeniePoint RFID card will cost £9.00 (£7.50 + VAT) and will be delivered in 3-5 working days
  • The cost for FX+ employees to use the FX+ charger is a £0.40 connection fee and then £0.10p/kWh
  • The charger types are 7kw - type 2 Socket
  • To make sure that the charging points aren’t clogged up, a penalty charge of £10 will be applied if people charge for more than 6 hours.

This is in line with the other chargers in Cornwall.

Only staff and students can use the 2 charging points on campus – at this stage we can’t allow offsite users to charge there.
