Merry Hill introduces new EV infrastructure

Sovereign Centros has announced the installation of 32 twin-socket electric vehicle charging points at the Merry Hill shopping destination in the West Midlands.

EV charging specialist Zest has invested in the centre to deploy the charge points and provide long-term operation. The new offering has the ability to charge 64 cars simultaneously from either fast or rapid chargers.

Visitors are able to charge while they shop with the 22kW fast chargers adding 90 miles’ range in just one hour. Meanwhile, the rapid chargers can fully charge most cars in less than an hour.

Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, said: “We’ve committed to rolling out thousands of EV chargers right across our region. We know that as EV adoption accelerates, having the right infrastructure in place in key locations will ensure a smooth and rapid transition. It’s great to see Merry Hill at the forefront of that change with 30 EV chargers going into their car park. I’d like to express my thanks to major stakeholders like Merry Hill and Sovereign Centros for playing their part and very much hope it will encourage others to make their own contribution in the months and years ahead.”

Graeme Jones, director at Sovereign Centros, said: “Electric vehicles are the future, and we want to ensure we provide visitors with as much accessibility to sustainable travel options as possible. We know how important taking positive action against climate change is to customers, and we want to continue to align as much as we can with these values. The implementation of Merry Hill’s new charging points is the first in a series of sustainability-focused initiatives that put our commitment in action, and we are delighted Zest has invested in our destination and partnered with us on this crucial scheme.”
