A new Gridserve Electric Retail Hub has opened at the Teals farm shop, serving shoppers, the local community and those travelling on the scenic routes through Somerset.

Located on the A303, the new charging hub has ten charging bays served by five charging medium power units – up to 180kW.

To make it as easy as possible for customers to charge their EVs, the hub has both CCS and CHAdeMOconnectors, accepts contactless payment and provides real-time status updates to various EV charging maps.

Teals is a farm-shop in Somerset near Wincanton which includes a food-market, and there is an on-site restaurant serving breakfast and lunch every day.

Gridserve’s Electric Highway now has 190 locations with more than 1,400 charging bays, including 100 charging bays so far this year.

Rebecca Trebble, Chief Customer Experience Officer at Gridserve, said, “We’re delighted to welcome Teals onto the Gridserve Electric Highway as our latest Electric Retail Hub with electric car drivers able to charge while visiting the farm shop.

“It’s the perfect location to supplement our existing electric vehicle charging on the busy A303 for those travelling to the South West.”

Ash Sinfield, Founder of Teals, said: “We are excited to now have ten Gridserve charging bays onsite for our guests to charge their vehicles while they are with us.

“At Teals, we can offer a different sort of charging experience, weather it involves taking your dog and kids for a leg stretch around the dog jog or sampling a meal in our restaurant, you can expect to spend your time doing something joyful while you are with us.”
