UK's First Electric Forecourt to open next Month
Gridserve is opening the first of 100 hoped for nationwide electric forecourts in Braintree, Essex next month. It has 24 charging points that can give 200 miles of battery range in 20 minutes for the latest electric vehicle models.
The site will also have an array of shops including Costa Coffee, WH Smith, Post Office and Booths - all powered by electricity from solar energy and battery storage.
Whilst You Wait For Electric Car Charging...
While you are waiting for your car to charge you will be able to make use of the children's play areas, exercise bikes, lounge with wifi and business meeting rooms if you wish.
The AA will give advice to drivers who need it via a helpline available on each charging point but it should be easy to plug your car in and tap with your credit card to start charging.
It is hoped that a nationwide network of these electric forecourts at busy road intersections will mean that electric vehicle drivers will have no range anxiety and drivers who live in places where they cannot charge at home will have a convenient electric forecourt nearby.
