InstaVolt, the UK’s largest and most reliable public EV rapid charging network, has opened a new site in Saxmundham, Suffolk.

The eight rapid chargers are located at Friday Street Farm, a large farm shop and café, offering EV drivers somewhere to relax while charging. This latest addition brings the first InstaVolt EV charging site to the Suffolk market town, situated along a key route on the A12 running from Ipswich to Lowestoft.

James Blyth, the owner of Friday Street Farm said: “We’re delighted to have eight new rapid chargers supplied by InstaVolt. Alongside our farm shop which offers locally sourced, fresh produce, we also have an integrated butchery and kitchen, walk-in cheese room and deli and on-site, so drivers can pop in to enjoy a warming bite to eat or a hot drink while charging.

This is a great partnership and we’re proud to be working with InstaVolt.”

The site features two fully accessible bays, compliant with BSI PAS1899 guidelines for charger accessibility, with 1.2m of additional space on either side of and at each end of the parking bay. The chargers are all installed flush to the ground and these chargers have been designed with lower screens and an improved cable management system to allow for easier manoeuvrability. The site also features a 7.2m long bay to accommodate charging for larger vehicles such as vans and trailers.

Voted as one of Britain’s top rapid charging networks**, InstaVolt’s chargers are powered using 100% renewable energy, easy to use and take contactless payment: there’s no need to sign up and no subscription required.
