Necton gets electric charging hub on A47
InstaVolt has just opened its largest rapid charging hub to date at Necton, on the A47.
With eight ChargePoint CPE250 high powered chargers, it’s perfectly placed for both local EV drivers and holidaymakers heading for the coast this summer.
The brand new service area provides a range of facilities for drivers to enjoy whilst they recharge at rates of up to 125kW, including a Costa Coffee drive thru and a Co-op supermarket.
Adrian Keen, CEO of InstaVolt, said: “The Necton Hub is strategically very important to us. Not only does it recognise that Norfolk as a county has excellent green credentials and a growing number of EV drivers committed to improving air quality, but it will also cater for the thousands of people who have decided to enjoy a staycation and visit the beautiful county of Norfolk this summer.
“Now they can head to the east coast in their electric cars safe in the knowledge that Necton is up and running and will benefit from InstaVolt’s reputation for having chargers which are easy to use, accept contactless payment and are the last word in reliability.”
Mr Keen added: “A lack of charging infrastructure on the country’s major arteries is often cited as a concern for current and prospective EV drivers. We are solving that problem by deploying chargers where drivers need them most. I have no doubt Necton on the A47 will be an extremely popular addition to our portfolio.”
InstaVolt has built its reputation on the philosophy that charging an electric vehicle should be quick and easy which is why, unlike many other companies, InstaVolt operates an ‘open charger’ model, so anyone can use its charging points on a pay-as-you-go basis, using contactless.
Last month, InstaVolt was named as the best electric vehicle charging network in Auto Express.
