ChargePoint Services has acquired SSE’s EV charging network in Hampshire and Cornwall. The move will see these points included on the ChargePoint Genie network, with 23 three-socket 50kW rapid chargers and 28 twin-socket fast chargers spread across the two areas.
ChargePoint Services has already stated that it will look to add to these charger numbers in both counties, with additional points at multiple sites across the regions. The timing of the acquisition comes as new features have been rolled out across the Genie platform. The network prides itself on charging by kWh used rather than time, and has live maps and charge bump status available too.
The ChargePoint Genie network can be used with any compatible and registered RFID card – including the TfL Oyster Card and those from other networks. An emergency charge text service is available too for drivers who haven’t previously registered.
Alex Bamberg, Managing Director of ChargePoint Services Ltd, said: “We are very pleased to be able to announce this acquisition, this hugely supports our mission to continue to expand the GeniePoint Network making it the most accessible and reliable EV charging facility in the UK.”
Across the two areas of Hampshire & Cornwall, there are currently 23 tri header 50kW rapid chargers and 28 twin socket fast chargers, ChargePoint aims to swiftly expand these numbers providing additional chargers for drivers at multiple sites across the counties.
