JOLT EV charging network to roll out in collaboration with Local Authority of Barnet, marking the first step in a nationwide deployment, will bring free, fast and clean roadside charging stations across the Borough. JOLT plans to roll out thousands of charging stations across UK cities in the coming years.
The JOLT EV charging network, similar to the customer proposition JOLT delivers in Australia, provides all-electric vehicle drivers with access to 7 kWh, or around 30 miles of free charging per day, in 15 to 20 minutes of charge time, depending on the vehicle.
The UK partnership follows a £2.1m funding grant to the London Borough of Barnet, as part of the Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (LEVI) Pilot Project, a government scheme supporting the rollout of EV charging infrastructure. LEVI aims to deliver a step change in the expansion and growth of on-street charging infrastructure across the country.
JOLT recently announced a partnership with TELUS to roll out 5,000 EV chargers across Canada and also operates in Australia, New Zealand and now the UK, with thousands of EV charging stations under construction.
