Electric vehicle drivers have been provided with Rapid Charging Facilities at Liphook (North) Services – one of Hampshire’s major motoring service stations, by a partnership between ChargePoint Services and EHDC.
Vital recharging to drivers heading up from the South Coast towards the M25 and other major link roads will be provided by the state-of-the-art, tri-connector GeniePoint Rapid Charger, which has been installed. In as little as 20 minutes, the charger can charge all vehicle types, both plug-in hybrid and pure electric vehicles, just enough time for drivers to take a break or purchase refreshments nearby.
“The installation of a GeniePoint Rapid Charger at Liphook will make a fundamental difference to drivers using the A3. Being the only Rapid Charger on this road, it will provide a critical service and link from the South Coast to London, opening up the road to all electric vehicle commuters, delivery drivers, taxi and fleet vehicles,” said Alex Bamberg, managing director, ChargePoint Services.
The fastest expanding, reliable rapid charging network across the UK, the charger becomes part of the GeniePoint Network, which is easy to use and drivers can access the charger via mobile web App or RFID card. It is also the largest Rapid charging network in Hampshire with chargers from East to West.
Cllr Angela Glass, Member for Bramshott & Liphook, and Portfolio Holder, Planning & Affordable Housing, East Hampshire District Council, said. “East Hampshire District Council promotes sustainable transport, including the switch to electric vehicles. EV users will find chargers in convenient locations across East Hampshire as the network grows, and this will help more people to switch to electric vehicles. Residents, visitors and businesses will all benefit as a result.” PWKD27022018
