Electric/Hybrid – Booths becomes latest UK retailer to roll out electric car chargers – Renewable Energy Magazine


Booths, which is celebrated for its local sourcing and strong links to the local community, is working with InstaVolt to install electric car chargers at many of its sites across the North of England. The first four went live at its Kirkby Lonsdale store last week and a further 38 are due to be switched on over coming weeks and months.

InstaVolt is one of the UK’s leading providers of rapid electric car chargers. All of its charging stations are available for EV drivers to use on a pay-as-you-go basis with no subscription, card or membership needed. Drivers simply tap their contactless credit or debit card to pay.

Booths has identified a number of sites where it plans to install InstaVolt chargers. A total of 40 chargers are already installed at locations including:

Kirkby Lonsdale

Penwortham

Longton

Ulverston

Ilkley

Lytham

Barrowford

Hesketh Bank

Garstang

Keswick

Carnforth

Windemere

Scotforth

Further installations are also expected to commence shortly at Booth’s Kendal store and planning on the remainder of the Booths estate is well underway.

“At Booths we take a pride in providing the best possible service to customers both old and new” said Chairman and CEO Edwin Booth. “With the increase in electric and hybrid car ownership we are working with InstaVolt to offer a new and important facility which is part of the journey towards a more sustainable future for personal transport.”

Tim Payne, CEO of InstaVolt, added that as sales of electric cars rise it’s becoming increasingly important to create a public network of rapid chargers in places that fit into people’s lives and allow them to charge their EVs just like they’d top up with petrol or diesel.
