Tees Valley business park gets first fast charger
Located at the entrance to the 700-acre site, the post is close to the A19 and A689 for easy access, and is the eighth quick charging point in the region. It joins a network of over 300 installed in the North East by Charge Your Car, after it was named as the UK’s first Low Carbon Economic Area.
Matt Johnson, development manager at Wynyard Park, said: ‘Our vision for the site is to create a high-class mixed use sustainable community that includes a hospital, homes, shops and leisure facilities. Environmentally-friendly facilities such as this charging point reflect that vision and we are delighted with its installation.’
Members will be able to access the charging point for free, while visitors can recharge for £5 as part of the region’s new Pay as you Go network.
Josey Wardle, project manager for Charge your Car, commented: ‘Wynyard Park is one of the North East’s leading business locations and is well positioned close to all of the region’s major road links. Additionally, Stockton Council has been a real advocate of Charge your Car since the programme launched, so we were really keen to see a quick charger installed in the south of the region which will help to plug a gap in the network.’
