GRIDSERVE has opened its latest electric vehicle (EV) charging Super Hub in the shadow of Stonehenge. Located a few minutes down the A303 from the prehistoric monument, Solstice Park now offers eight 350kW-capable high power chargers bringing 21st-century technology to one of the oldest sites in the world.
If your car has the tech, these high power chargers can add 100 miles (161km) of range in as little as five minutes – barely time to get the guidebook out. If you’re not a history buff then there’s plenty of reason to stop off at the RO Group development on your road trip with a new drive-thru Greggs and Taco Bell onsite.
The Electric Super Hub at Solstice Park is powered exclusively by net zero carbon energy. Like every GRIDSERVE charging location, Solstice Park offers contactless payment options to make charging and paying as fuss-free and easy as possible. The chargers feature eight CCS connectors and four CHAdeMO connectors.
The Solstice Park site in Wiltshire is also an important location for any electric vehicle driver travelling to the South West. The A303 is a key route from London to holiday hotspots in Devon and Cornwall, meaning the new Electric Super Hub will provide fast, hassle-free and reliable charging to millions of tourists each year.
This new location is in addition to Electric Super Hubs GRIDSERVE have under development in Exeter and Cornwall. This means travel to the South West will be far easier for electric car drivers.
Last year GRIDSERVE installed over 100 high power electric vehicle chargers across 11 Electric Super Hubs, with the second Electric Forecourt opening in Norwich.
