An­other place to charge your car

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - NEWS -

There is now a place at the petrol sta­tion to power up your elec­tric car in Tun­bridge Wells - bring­ing the to­tal num­ber of charg­ing points in west Kent to 18.

A Shell Recharge point opened at St John’s on Thurs­day. The power point, in St John’s Road, will be com­pat­i­ble with most elec­tric ve­hi­cles and bat­ter­ies can be charged by 80% in half an hour. There are no sub­scrip­tion fees but it will set driv­ers back 25p per kWh. To charge a 30kWh Nis­san Leaf, for in­stance, it would cost £7.50.

Jane Lind­say-Green, a man­ager at Shell said: “We are de­lighted to bring Shell Recharge to our cus­tomers. The ser­vice pro­vides elec­tric ve­hi­cle driv­ers with a con­ve­nient way to charge their cars on-the-go and at Shell St Johns they can also pick up a snack and use the free Wi-Fi while they wait.”

Else­where in Tun­bridge Wells there are seven pub­lic charg­ing points. The town is fol­lowed by Maid­stone, which has five. Ton­bridge and Ayles­ford each have two, and both Mar­den and Kings Hill have one.
