Ecotricity sets up renewable-energy-powered EV charging stations across UK motorways
In a bid to turn the roadways of U.K. greener than ever before, Ecotricity plans to install green-energy-powered electric vehicle (EV) charging points at selected motorway service stations across the United Kingdom. Ecotricity is putting every effort into promoting the use of EVs with these charging posts that will be set up at Welcome Break service stations. The charging posts will power up with either solar energy or wind energy, making them truly green, without hooking on to the grid all the time. The charging posts have 7-pin 400v/32A supply capable of charging cars in 20 minutes to a couple of hours, depending on how much charge you require!
The charging post also sports slower 3-pin 220v/13A supply that takes about two hours to charge EVs, and can be left plugged in overnight for those who chose to spend a night at the service station’s hotel.
