Electric vehicle charging hub opens in town centre

A new ultra-rapid electric vehicle (EV) charging hub has opened in a town centre.

EV drivers in Croydon will now be able to charge their vehicles in as little as 30 minutes as a result of RAW Charging’s newest ChargeYard in Croydon town centre.

Located just off Waddon Marsh Way, next to Valley Retail Park, the new charging hub will support about 45 per cent of EV drivers who are unable to charge their vehicle at home.

Bruce Galliford, RAW Charging chief executive, said: “Based in the town centre, the new location will be of great benefit to those who live and work in the area.”

The new ChargeYard features four dual Alpitronic 150kW chargers which will allow eight vehicles to charge at the same time. 

The DC chargers are suited to EV drivers looking to top up their charge while on the go, with an average charge time of 30-40 minutes for a full charge. 

The hub is open 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week and drivers will have the option to pay to charge through contactless debit and credit cards, a mobile app, or RFID cards.

RAW Charging is one of the UK’s leading EV charging providers, and the Croydon ChargeYard is its latest addition.

Mr Galliford said: “By converting previously disused land we are bringing sites back into use in a sustainable way.

“We hope increasing the availability of charging infrastructure will encourage more individuals to embrace EV’s as we move towards the UK’s net carbon zero future.”
