Strategic Location and Sustainability Efforts:

The Fort’s convenient location, easily accessible from the M6 motorway, makes these chargers ideal for local shoppers, residents, and EV drivers traveling through the area.

Furthermore, the commitment to sustainability goes beyond just offering EV charging. The Fort’s owners are taking a commendable step towards reducing the shopping center’s carbon footprint by installing thousands of solar panels on the rooftops. Work on this project is expected to begin later this month. The 4,000 Trina Solar Vertex Solar panels will produce up to 1,600 kWp (kilowatt peak) of electricity, which is almost half the power needed to run the shopping park.

Overall, The Fort’s new EV charging facilities and commitment to sustainability make it a more attractive destination for eco-conscious shoppers and EV drivers alike.
