Allego has proudly unveiled its latest ultra-rapid electric vehicle (EV) charge point installation at the esteemed Pennells Garden Centre.  

Five 300kW charge points, each with dual socket connectors enable 10 EVs to be charged simultaneously.

Conveniently located just off the A46, the new site is an ideal charging stop for visitors to the garden centre, the nearby Whisby Nature Park, as well as travellers on longer journeys.

"Allego stands tall in its mission, presenting a fully funded model to empower businesses and local authorities in realising this pivotal aspect of their strategy,” said Paz Sharma, Managing Director Allego UK.

“The launch of the Pennells Garden Centre hub is a testament to Allego's mission to revolutionise and accelerate EV charging infrastructure across the UK. 

“Here in the heart of Lincolnshire, this collaboration propels us forward in our vision to expedite green transportation, offering customers and the public access to a state-of-the-art charging hub." 

Allego is a Zapmap Live data partner, meaning that users of the Zapmap app and web map can view every charge point on the Allego charging network and see the live status and availability, making planning your journey and changing stops simpler.

"Our collaboration with Allego marks a defining moment in our commitment to sustainability.  This partnership seamlessly aligns with our vision for a greener, more environmentally conscious community,” said Richard Pennell, Chairman of Pennells Garden Centre.

“We have a history of serving local residents and visitors to the region alike through our garden centre, offering retail and refreshments onsite.  It is of paramount importance for us in providing convenience and access to EV Charging for our regular customers and all EV drivers in general." 

Having recently launched at Stadium MK in March this year, Allego now has over 160 UK charging sites, including more than 120 charge points in London. 

The Allego network is set to expand rapidly over the next 5 years and beyond. Working with both private landowners and local authorities, the company is keen to invest an estimated £100 million in ultra-rapid EV charging infrastructure across the UK and Ireland.
