Charging at EV Zones
EV Zones are the new standard in public charging.
They're larger charging sites designed to be available when you need them.
- Greater number of bays increases likelihood of plugging in straight away.
- High visibility signage and bay markings make EV Zones easy to find.
- ICE-deterrent measures prevent bays being blocked.
