The 75 kW chargers, equipped with Osprey’s in-house software, Osprey Iris, are compatible with every EV currently on the market and can add 100 miles of range in just 35 minutes, depending on the vehicle model and the battery. The chargers are located next to John o’ Groats and so are an ideal place to charge an EV while the occupants are admiring the sea view and shopping for souvenirs.

They are easy to use and are designed with a simple payment system for drivers, accepting contactless bank cards Apple/Google Pay, the Osprey App and RFID card payments as well as payments through all major third-party payment methods including fleet cards.

Access to charging remains one of the biggest barriers to EV adoption. The new John o’ Groats installation is expected to encourage EV uptake in the area and increase electric touring of the NC500 route, bolstering the UK’s national charging infrastructure and improving local air quality, reducing noise pollution and supporting local decarbonisation efforts.

“We’re delighted to launch this first charging location with Heritage Great Britain and to bring the latest in rapid charging technology to the northernmost point of mainland Britain!” said Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging. “The electric transition is well underway and we’re here to provide a reliable and rapid public charging service for all drivers, from Cornwall to the top of Scotland. Osprey now has over 800 charge points installed across the UK, with each location carefully designed to maximise space, accessibility and availability and made to the latest and highest standards. This new charging site at John o’ Groats is a fantastic addition to the re-charging network that will enable the decarbonisation of transport in the UK.”
