Booths rolls out InstaVolt rapid chargers


InstaVolt has partnered with Booths to install its rapid EV charge points at the independent northern retailer’s locations, with 40 charge points already installed.

The first four units have already gone live at Booths’ Kirkby Longdale site, with the additional units due to come online in the next few weeks and months. On top of the locations listed below, installations are expected to start shortly at Booths’ Kendal store, and planning is already underway to cover the rest of the company’s estate.

Following on from the Kirkby Longdale store, locations where InstaVolt chargers are due to come online shortly are:

  • • Penwortham
  • • Longton
  • • Ulverston
  • • Ilkley
  • • Lytham
  • • Barrowford
  • • Hesketh Bank
  • • Garstang
  • • Keswick
  • • Carnforth
  • • Windemere
  • • Scotforth

Chairman and CEO Edwin Booth said: “At Booths we take a pride in providing the best possible service to customers both old and new. With the increase in electric and hybrid car ownership we are working with InstaVolt to offer a new and important facility which is part of the journey towards a more sustainable future for personal transport.”

Tim Payne, CEO of InstaVolt, added: “As sales of electric cars rise it’s becoming increasingly important to create a public network of rapid chargers in places that fit into people’s lives and allow them to charge their EVs just like they’d top up with petrol or diesel.

Places such as supermarkets are a perfect example and we’re pleased to be working with Booths. This move to install InstaVolt chargers will see the chain become a significant part of the UK’s public charging infrastructure.”
