WALES has its first high-powered EV charging hub. It’s located at the Moto services in Swansea on junction 47 of the M4.
Part of the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway, the site will start with six 350kW high-power EV charge points.
GRIDSERVE says this can be quickly scaled up to 12 once demand rises.
All chargers will be supplied with 100% net zero carbon energy from GRIDSERVE’s solar farms, accept contactless payment for maximum accessibility, and have the ability to deliver 100-miles of range in less than 10 minutes.
Toddington Harper, CEO of GRIDSERVE, said:
“Our mission is to accelerate the transition to electric vehicles in the shortest possible timeframes to help prevent the worst impacts of climate change. This is a landmark project for GRIDSERVE and Moto and the first high-power charging facility of its kind for Wales. We’re really excited to be demonstrating that all parts of the UK should be able to embrace the EV revolution. We cannot let a lack of infrastructure prevent drivers from realising the myriad of benefits that come with driving an electric vehicle. This project will help deliver the confidence for more people to make the switch to EVs, as well as support the growing number of people who already have.”
