InstaVolt has begun construction of its 400th rapid charger, making it the UK’s largest owner-operated network of rapid chargers in the UK. It expects to have 600 rapid chargers in service by next spring.
InstaVolt installs its chargers at no cost to the location owners, and takes care of the entire process, from planning to ongoing maintenance. The charger network is a “fully open tap-to-pay network,” meaning drivers don’t need a subscription, membership or RFID card to pay. Users may use any contactless payment method.
InstaVolt CFO Adrian Keen said, “We put the customer experience at the heart of everything we do. It’s proven a popular formula for landowners who want to cater for the rise in electric vehicles on the roads, without making the necessary capital outlay or worrying about how to operate and maintain the hardware.”
