BP Pulse is working with Lincolnshire Co-op to increase EV charging infrastructure across Lincolnshire and nearby counties.

The company has recently installed 32 new rapid 50 kW charging bays, bringing the total number of BP Pulse charge points at Lincolnshire Co-op stores to 60.

These new charge points are live at the following stores: Winning Post, Old Leake, Long Bennington, Morton, Albert Street, Alford, Coningsby, Caistor, Dunholme, Holbeach, Newbridge Hill, Skirbeck Road, Wygate Park, Wybers, Barnetby, Heckington, Whittlesey, North Hykeham, Hallcroft, Ruskington, Roman Bank, Woodville Road, Metheringham, Morton Bourne, Parklands, Sturton by Stow, Swineshead, Skellingthorpe.

Recent research by BP Pulse shows 51% of UK EV drivers chose to buy a snack, hot drink or groceries for later at a convenience store on their last charge.

Nearly all the Lincolnshire Co-op chargers have been installed in extra-wide bays to ensure customers who need it have extra room to charge.

Andrew Turner, Procurement and Sustainability Advisor at Lincolnshire Co-op, said, “Installing electric charging points at our trading outlets supports our communities in reducing tailpipe emissions by switching over to hybrid and electric vehicles.

“We’re determined to make life better in our communities, and central to that is looking after our local environment.

“Looking to the future, we’d like to further increase the availability of EV chargers to ensure coverage across Lincolnshire and the surrounding counties.”

Akira Kirton, vice president of BP Pulse UK, said, “Collaboration is going to be key to accelerating the EV transition.

“By partnering with Lincolnshire Co-op, we’re putting chargers in the places our customers need them.

“Customers can recharge their battery while they pick up something for dinner at the same time. Combining EV charging with a brilliant convenience offer is a no-brainer.”
