GRIDSERVE announces that the first of a nationwide network of over 100 Electric Forecourts is now under construction and will open this summer, offering convenient, ultra-fast, low-cost charging, with an outstanding customer experience.

The Electric Forecourt near Braintree, Essex, can charge 24 electric vehicles at once with superchargers that can deliver up to 350kW of charging power, enabling people to charge vehicles within 20-30 minutes initially, and much faster in the future as battery technologies mature.

The network of Electric Forecourts will be powered by clean, zero carbon solar energy and battery storage projects, also constructed by GRIDSERVE, ensuring carbon emission targets can be met, whilst also keeping prices low.
