Osprey Charging has opened two new public charging sites this week as it looks to bolster the UK’s EV charging network.
Earlier this week, Osprey increased access to public charging in Birmingham with four high-powered EV chargers installed at the Star City amusement centre, supporting local residents, businesses and visitors with reliable EV infrastructure.
The 150kW rapid charge points are compatible with every EV on the market today and can typically add 100 miles of range in just 20 minutes, depending on the model of the vehicle and its battery.
Osprey has also added two high-powered EV chargers installed at the Heart of England pub and restaurant in Weedon Bec, supporting local residents, businesses and visitors with reliable EV infrastructure.
The 75kW rapid charge points are compatible with every EV on the market today and can typically add 100 miles of range in just 35 minutes. Being next to a restaurant, the chargers are an ideal place to charge an EV whilst popping for a bite to eat. The chargers are easy to use and designed with simple payment for drivers, accepting contactless bank cards, Apple/Google Pay, the Osprey App and RFID card payments as well as payments through all major third-party payment methods including fleet cards.
Access to charging is one of the biggest barriers to EV adoption and the installation is expected to encourage EV uptake in the area, bolstering the UK’s national charging infrastructure as well as improving local air quality, reducing noise pollution and supporting local decarbonisation efforts.
Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging, said: “The electric transition is well underway and we’re here to provide a reliable and rapid public charging service for drivers, from Cornwall to Scottish Highlands. Each of our new locations is carefully designed to maximise space, accessibility and availability of chargers, working to the latest and highest standards. This new charging site at the Heart of England pub and restaurant in Weedon Bec is a vital part of the re-charging network that will enable the decarbonisation of transport in the UK.”
