InstaVolt has opened a rapid charging hub at a new service area Norfolk.

With eight ChargePoint CPE250 high powered chargers, the hub at the Netcon services area on the A47 is well placed for both local EV drivers and holidaymakers heading for the coast this summer.

The service area provides a range of facilities for drivers to use whilst they recharge at rates of up to 125kW, including a Costa Coffee drive-thru and a Co-op supermarket.

Adrian Keen, chief executive of InstaVolt, said: “The Necton Hub is strategically very important to us. Not only does it recognise that Norfolk as a county has excellent green credentials and a growing number of EV drivers committed to improving air quality, but it will also cater for the thousands of people who have decided to enjoy a ‘staycation’ and visit the beautiful county of Norfolk this summer.”

Keen said that EV charging provision is increasing across the UK. “A lack of charging infrastructure on the country’s major arteries is often cited as a concern for current and prospective EV drivers,” he said. “We are solving that problem by deploying chargers where drivers need them most.”

InstaVolt operates an ‘open charger’ model, meaning anyone can use its charging points on a pay-as-you-go basis. No monthly subscription and no membership cards are required, with drivers just needing a contactless payment card to start a charging session.

InstaVolt was named as the best electric vehicle charging network for multiple brands of vehicle in 2020 in Auto Express’ first ever chargepoint operator survey.
