GRIDSERVE has announced the opening of two new electric super hubs in an effort to increase access to charging on one of the UK’s busiest motorways, the A1(M), at Moto Washington North and South.

The new super hubs will each have six 350kW-capable ultra-rapid chargers, and will have both CCS and CHAdeMO connectors. All of the charge points will have contactless payment options. GRIDSERVE Electric Highway points can be found on Zapmap by using the network filter, and users can of course view real-time status of the charge points to discover availability. 

“We are thrilled to open our next Electric Super Hubs at both Washington North and Southbound,” said Toddington Harper, CEO of GRIDSERVE.

“As the demand for electric vehicles and charging increases, it is vital we continue this pace to roll out the installation of High Power chargers to support EV drivers and those making the switch to electric.

“We look forward to continuing our expansion and installing hundreds more High Power chargers across the network.” 

The charge points are powered by 100% net zero carbon energy from GRIDSERVE’s own hybrid solar and battery farms, that supports their purpose to ‘move the needle on climate change.’

“As the largest UK Motorway Services Operator, we are continuing our mission to transform the UK’s rest stop experience and reducing range anxiety by revolutionising the EV charging experience for motorists on motorways is at the heart of our plans,” said Moto Chief Executive, Ken McMeikan.

“We’re delighted to be able to continue our roll-out of the High Power charging Hubs and we will be opening many more hubs at our Motorway Service Areas across the country throughout the remainder of this year.”
