Pod Point has been expanding its network in a number of different areas recently, with installations at retail centres, leisure parks, and head offices. New units have gone in in North Lincolnshire, Cheltenham, and holiday locations across the UK.
The North Lincolnshire Shopping Park in Scunthorpe now has a twin-socket 7 kW Pod Point charger for customers to charge their EV on while they shop. The unit is free to use on the Open Charge network. Users only need to plug in, select the point on the Pod Point Open Charge app, and confirm their charge.
Visitors to Bridge Leisure Parks sites will also be able to charge their EVs on Pod Point units. The below sites have 7 kW chargers, and are available for both customers and members of the public at a cost of £1 per hour.
- Silver Sands Holiday Park – Moray
- Turnberry Holiday Park – Ayrshire
- Sand-le-Mere Holiday Village – East Yorkshire
- Ashbourne Heights Country Park – Peak District
- Hedley Wood Holiday Park – Bude, Devon
- Hengar Manor – Bodmin, Cornwall
- Seaview Holiday Village – Looe, Cornwall
- Trevella Holiday Park – Newquay, Cornwall
Finally, Pod Point has installed charge points at clothing brand Superdry’s headquarters in Cheltenham for its employees. Seven 7 kW charge points and two 22 kW units have been installed at the offices, for staff to use at no cost. The move is part of Superdry’s efforts to encourage employees into plug-in cars, with seven of its 700 staff now driving electric vehicles – up from one in 2016.
