GRIDSERVE opens Slough electric charging hub

Drivers at Slough Retail Park can now access a brand new GRIDSERVE Electric Retail Hub for charging.

The new charging location, close to the M4, aims to support supporters and those drinking and working nearby. It has eight charging bays served by four dual charging Medium Power (up to 120kW) units. 

The facility has both CCS and CHAdeMO connectors, and accepts contactless payment and provides real-time status updates to a myriad of popular EV charging maps.  

Rebecca Trebble, Chief Customer Experience Officer, said: “It is great to be able to offer reliable and easy electric vehicle charging to the visitors of the Slough Retail Park, where we are committed to delivering an excellent charging experience to all users.

“We look forward to opening more Electric Retail Hubs to support the transition to net zero transportation soon.”

Ed Bales, Asset Manager at Orchard Street, said:“Installing electric vehicle charging points at Slough Retail Park further broadens the scheme’s vibrant offering to local customers, whilst encouraging sustainable travel for those who visit or work at our assets.

“These are the first rapid charging bays to open within our retail park portfolio and this project aligns well with our broader responsible investment approach and our emphasis on utilising our asset management expertise to upgrade existing assets in line with best-practice sustainability considerations. We have built up a strong relationship with Gridserve and look forward to working with them on a number of other future projects.”
