Morrisons announces charging-point deal with GeniePoint

100 rapid charging points to be installed at Morrisons supermarkets nationwide

Morrisons and GeniePoint

Morrisons has become the latest supermarket brand to announce a large-scale deal for the installation of rapid charging points at its branches across the UK.

ChargePoint Services, the owner and operator of the GeniePoint Network, will provide its highest-specification 50-100kW chargers to the retailer, with 100 of them set to be installed by the end of 2019.

The first units are scheduled to be up and running by the end of April. The GeniePoint network requires registration at geniepoint.co.uk, but there is no monthly fee and drivers pay only for the electricity they use.

Alex Bamberg, managing director of ChargePoint Services, said: “We are very pleased to be working with Morrisons, an organisation that is putting into practice its publicised sustainability and customer service strategies.

"By offering another useful local service, customers are provided with choice for grocery, café and comfort stops, and green vehicle refuelling. Whether they are local residents or a longer-distance traveller, Morrisons are supporting drivers making the change to clean transport technology."

Morrisons' senior buying manager for fuel and services Andrew Ball added: “We recently passed a landmark, having introduced over 1,000 new and diverse service points to our stores, including parcel collection, holiday money, barbers, car buying and clothes recycling.

"We are pleased to be working with ChargePoint Services to introduce electric car chargers to this family of services."

Last year, Tesco announced a deal with Volkswagen and Pod Point for the installation of 600 charging points across its UK branch network.
