GRIDSERVE® submits planning application for an Electric Forecourt® in BromboroughGRIDSERVE
The Wirral is looking to become one of the beneficiaries of over 100 locations across the UK to feature a GRIDSERVE Electric Forecourt® , delivering convenient, ultra-fast, stress-free charging for drivers of all types of electric vehicles – particularly those who don’t have off-street charging at home.
Electric Forecourts® are supplied by 100% renewable, net zero carbon energy, and represent a critical part of the solution needed to support the transition to mass market numbers of electric vehicles, in advance of the ban of new petrol or diesel vehicles in 8.5 years from now.
GRIDSERVE® is pleased to announce that it has submitted a planning application to build an Electric Forecourt® in Bromborough, one of over 100 sites across the UK that aim to make charging an electric vehicle (EV) as easy as using petrol stations. Visit www.gridserve.com/bromborough for details.
The Bromborough Electric Forecourt®, to be located on the A41 (New Chester Road) at the Old Hall Road entrance to the Wirral International Business Park, CH62 3PE, will offer the world’s fastest charging rates, with the ability to charge an EV in less than 30-minutes, and help to position the Wirral at the forefront of the low-carbon transport revolution. The forecourt is conveniently located for the region’s private and business users, supplying low cost, high- speed charging powered by 100% renewable energy. It will also offer considerable relief for residents in the area that don’t have access to off-street parking for home charging.
The planning application lodged with Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council, by GRIDSERVE®, includes 36 charging bays, a coffee shop, convenience retail, and an airport-style lounge with high-speed internet. This will also serve as a learning centre to raise interest and share information about all topics related to electric vehicles, and provide the confidence, and platform people need to help make the transition to electric vehicles in the earliest possible timeframes.
