Shopping centre network to get EV charging points
Dransfield Properties Ltd, which runs a number of shopping centres across the UK, is installing electric car charging points in partnership with InstaVolt.
The retail property company’s shopping centre at Lime Square in Openshaw, east Manchester, has started installing charging points already, while Marshall’s Yard in Gainsborough will follow with installation planned for later in the month. The company’s newest centre, Fox Valley in north Sheffield, will deploy InstaVolt units later in the year.
InstaVolt charging is offered on a pay-as-you-go basis with no subscription or membership required – drivers can just use their contactless credit or debit card to pay.
Dransfield Properties development surveyor Dave Hale said: “We know from the feedback we have already received from our customers that this is something that will definitely be welcomed at our centres and we’re delighted to be able to offer this rapid charging services to our shoppers.”
