RAW Charging has launched a new ultra-rapid electric vehicle charging hub in the heart of Croydon, open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The new ChargeYard, located just off Waddon Marsh Way, next to Valley Retail Park, features four dual Alpitronic 150 kW chargers which allows eight vehicles to charge simultaneously.

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

Drivers are given the option to pay to charge through contactless debit and credit cards, a mobile app, or RFID cards.

Based in London, RAW Charging provides motorists with a network of charging points around the UK and Europe.

The new site will be available to local businesses, taxi drivers and visitors to the area.

It will also deliver fast, accessible and affordable charging and support an estimated 45% of EV drivers who are unable to charge their vehicle at home.

Bruce Galliford, RAW Charging CEO said, “The launch of our latest ChargeYard will provide a vital EV charging resource for the people of Croydon. Based in the town centre, the new location will be of great benefit to those who live and work in the area.

“By converting previously disused land we are bringing sites back into use in a sustainable way while providing a crucial resource.

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