Forecourt firm deploys rapid EV chargers
Cornwall Garage Group is to install rapid EV chargers from InstaVolt at half of its 18-strong forecourt network.
InstaVolt has installed the chargers for free and will continue to maintain and update them at no cost to the forecourt. The company also pays Cornwall Garage Group a rental income in return for housing them. InstaVolt makes its money from the sale of electricity to drivers.
David Whistler from Cornwall Garage Group said: “There’s been a bit of nervousness across the fuel retailing industry about the cost implications of installing chargers, particularly in light of the new Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill, but this arrangement means we don’t actually have to pay a penny.”
