York to build its first charging hubs

by Feb 24, 2021

EvoEnergy will build two charging hubs in York at the Monks Cross and Poppleton Bar Park and Rides. The two sites are a City of York Council investment into high-speed electric vehicle charging. These hubs will cost a total of £2.2m with construction starting in February 2021.Each charging hub site will consist of solar PV canopies powering eight chargers. There will be four 50kw rapid chargers and four 150kw ultra rapids. With increasing battery capacities and charging speed capabilities on new electric vehicles, this range of chargers means people will be to charge quickly and easily. In order to reduce emissions and improve air quality around the region, the City of York Council approached EvoEnergy to design and install the charging hub. In addition to the solar canopies that will generate energy for the charging stations, both sites will feature battery storage (348kW / 507kWh), too. This means that the council will be able to store energy generated during the day. Link to the news: https://www.zap-map.com/york-begins-building-its-first-charging-hubs/
