High-power electric vehicle charging comes to Amesbury’s Solstice Park

High-power electric vehicle charging has come to Solstice Park in Amesbury, giving EV drivers the chance to top up on the busy A303 route between London and Devon and Cornwall.

And food outlets Taco Bell and Greggs have also opened at the site, its owner the RO, has announced.

The ‘electric super hub’ has been opened by Gridserve. Eight high-power chargers have been installed with the ability to add 100 miles in as little as five minutes and are powered by net zero carbon energy.

RO has enjoyed tremendous success at the 160-acre mixed-use Solstice Park development.

There are already several leading international and national food and beverage retailers as well as trade counter occupiers on the site such as Home Bargains, Screwfix, Howdens, McDonald’s and Costa Coffee.

Added to these are bakery Greggs and Taco Bell, the American fast-food restaurant chain that offers Mexican-inspired foods.

“We are delighted to host Gridserve’s super electric hub on our site at Solstice Park. This green initiative from Gridserve fits in well alongside the wider stable of environmentally focused assets in our larger group,” said David Kershaw, group real estate director at the RO.

“We are also pleased that Greggs and Taco Bell, two popular food chains, are now open for business at Solstice Park, where they have joined an already impressive array of other well known national and international brands at the site.”
