The greenest electricity supplier in the UK, Ecotricity, have announced that they are to roll out the first network of electric vehicle charging points on motorways in the world. These will be placed at motorway services run by Welcome Break, and the graphics will be supplied by Duttons Design
Duttons has been working alongside Ecotricity for the past two years and have designed the top-up zones and charging posts to ensure that they gain optimum stand out in busy car parks, and give future brand recognition. There will be a total of 29 live charge points by the end of September, and within 18 months they will exist at all Welcome Breaks establishments, thus allowing owners of electric vehicles to travel anywhere in the UK.
The charge points will be powered by 100% green energy courtesy of Ecotricity’s solar and wind parks, and in the outset will be free to use by registering for a special swipe card.
