A business park in Basingstoke is the latest British business to announce plans to install electric vehicle (EV) charging points with the help of EV charging company InstaVolt.
Two state-of-the-art rapid chargers will be installed in Chineham Park, enabling EV drivers to add hundreds of miles of range to their vehicles in just 20 minutes. EV charging company InstaVolt is based at the park and is currently installing thousands of rapid charging points across the country.
“We’re always looking for ways to minimise our impact on the environment and encouraging use of electric vehicles will play a big part of that going forward” said Wendy Scott, customer manager at Chineham Park. “We’re excited to be able to offer this rapid charging service to Chineham Park occupiers and visitors, thanks to our partnership with InstaVolt.”
Tim Payne, CEO of InstaVolt, added the company is installing 3,000 rapid chargers across the UK and so it’s only right that the company’s home town should be one of the places to benefit. As more and more people drive electric vehicles, having a network of places where they can charge up en route, such as business parks, will be incredibly important.
InstaVolt is set to install the charging units at Chineham Park this autumn. The devices, from US firm ChargePoint, can take an electric car to 80 per cent charge in half an hour. Unlike most other electric vehicle charging points, InstaVolt’s are available to use on a pay as you go basis, with no subscription or membership required. Drivers simply tap their contactless credit or debit card, charge up and go.
