Glasswells Home Furnishing Superstore in Bury St Edmunds has unveiled four newly-installed electric vehicle charging points at its site on Newmarket Road. They form part of Glasswells continued investment in green energy, which includes solar panel installations at every site, low energy lighting and ultra-efficient DAF delivery vehicles.

The charging points are accessible during normal shop opening hours and provide around a 75-mile charge in an hour, at a cost of 35p per kWh, with contactless and RFID card payment options. Supplied and installed by Anglia Car Charging, the 22kWh charging units offer EV owners a fast-charging solution.

Managing director Paul Glasswell said: “During the 75-year long history of Glasswells, we have always been forerunners when it comes to embracing and investing in new technologies. We are very pleased to be one of the first large retailers in the area to offer our customers, and those passing through the town, an eco-friendly community service to top-up their electric vehicles. We have a large car park, plenty of capacity from the electricity generated by our solar panel and a lovely store to shop in, with restaurant, for customers to enjoy while they wait.”
