We got the power!
Sustainability is really important to The Fort, from improving the urban biodiversity of the area to reducing our carbon footprint.
Work has started on installing 20 GRIDSERVE Electric Vehicle charging points at The Fort.
There will be eight fast (22kW) and 12 ultra rapid (180kW) charge points so EV drivers can top up on charge whilst they shop. The chargers will be in the car park on the Next side.
And we have put in a planning application to fit thousands of solar panels on the roofs of our shops to reduce our carbon footprint. Subject to approval we will install 4,000 Trina Solar Vertex Solar panels which produce up to 1,600 kWp (kilowatt peak) of electricity, which is almost half the power needed to run The Fort.
