Tritium and Peel NRE have partnered to install the first DC rapid charger at Straiton Retail Park in Scotland. The RT50 charging station will support local business and provide a necessary charging amenity at the Peel L&P Retail Park site at Straiton Mains, off the A702/City of Edinburgh corridor.

The recent deployment is part of a larger rollout by Peel L&P, with another batch of retail locations planned later in 2021. This DC rapid charger installation is also part of Drive Energi network, a new joint venture between Peel NRE and Box Energi to build, own, and operate one of the largest retail-located rapid charging networks in the UK.

“Tritium has been working in close cooperation with Peel NRE to deliver the latest DC fast charging solutions, addressing the needs of retail locations with easy-to-use, reliable, seamless, and convenient charging experiences for customers,” said Kevin Pugh, Tritium Country Manager, UK. 

The new installation will be located at Straiton Retail Park’s The Terrace, a recently opened £13 million development with 25,500 square feet of retail space.

“The new charging points at our retail parks, including our first rapid chargers, are a welcome addition to our already growing portfolio of electric vehicle charging points and we will continue to look for more locations to help the country achieve its net zero targets,” said Jonathan Burley, Commercial Director at Peel NRE. “In a fast-moving sector, it is important to have a partner like Tritium who are at the forefront of charge point technology development to provide a great user experience for our customers.”
