Morrisons is set to begin rolling out electric vehicle (EV) charging stations across its network as early as next month.
As part of a new partnership with ChargePoint Services, which operates GeniePoint EV charging stations across the UK, Morrisons plans to install charging points in its car parks starting at the end of April, with 100 set to be launched by the end of the year.
The GeniePoint stations offer customers the highest specification rapid 50-100kW chargers, which are capable of entirely refuelling an EV in around 20 minutes.
“We are very pleased to be working with Morrisons, an organisation that is putting into practice its publicised sustainability and customer service strategies,” Chargepoint’s managing director Alex Bamberg said.
“By offering another useful local service, customers are provided with choice for grocery, café and comfort stops, and green vehicle refuelling. Whether they are local residents or a longer distance traveller, Morrisons are supporting drivers making the change to clean transport technology”.
Morrisons’ senior buying manager for fuel and services Andrew Ball added: “Customers have told us that they want popular and useful services in our stores and we are continuing to listen and respond to that feedback.
“We are pleased to be working with ChargePoint Services to introduce the GeniePoint Network – electric car chargers to this family of services”.
