Yes, customers need to provide their own charging cable, we do not supply them on site.
How fast is the charge?
The EV charge units charge at a rate of 7.4kw, enabling them to fully charge a typical car in approximately four hours.
How long can you park in an EV bay?
Customers can park their electric car in the car park for as long as they want, however we do ask that customers come and move their car from the EV bay into another car parking space once their car has finished charging. This will help to free up the EV bays quicker for other electric vehicle owners to also make use of the charge points.
