Saffron Walden charging station opens for business

9th February 2023 saw the launch of our first on-site public access charging station, and an open morning session for investors and local businesses to visit and see the setup for themselves. Our first charging station features 4 easily accessible charging spaces at the front of our Head Office, allowing local fleets and EV owners to charge their vehicles throughout their working day.

The Green2 team were on hand throughout the morning to welcome visitors and talk guests through our exciting plans for the coming year. Members of our sales, marketing, training and leadership teams offered a wider insight into the Green2 movement, whilst guests from our clients and suppliers were able to discuss the science and strategy behind EV charging and vehicle integration.

Our open day event featured a range of EVs currently available on the market, including the Mercedes E-Vito van, and the impressive E-Actros 300, an all electric truck, with a range of up to 250 miles. Rygor Commercials kindly provided one of their Maxus EDeliver 9 vans to show visitors and fleet managers other options available to them. The AA also joined us to display how electric vehicles can be used for an efficient breakdown and recovery service, proving that EVs can be adaptable and reliable across every sector.

As a logistics business with a 100% electric fleet target of end of 2024, we understand how crucial local, easy to access charging is to drivers, so it was a real no-brainer for our team to develop a solution that offers a ‘first of its kind’ charging solution in the heart of Saffron Walden's industrial park, which is open to all.

Mobile charging solutions have kindly been provided to Green2 by Vital EV Solutions, allowing for the fast opening of our facilities, prior to static charging setups being installed. Having developed strong relationships with the Vital EV team over our time in the industry, we were delighted to partner with them on this project. Our chargers can be accessed via the Fuuse app, allowing drivers to see which chargers are available, as well as costs and site opening hours.

With collaboration at the core of the Green2 ethos, we are delighted to have taken the first step towards providing both local and national charging solutions, for all. The feedback received from both new and existing contacts has been overwhelmingly positive, and it is great to see so many local businesses and fleets already using EVs.

For those that are currently sat on the fence about the switch to an EV, we hope that by having fast charging solutions on their doorstep, they will have the reassurance needed to make the leap to electric.
