Enefit Volt’s first public charger inaugurated in Kehra

Estonia’s largest electric car charging network Enefit Volt inaugurated the first public charger with a capacity of 22 kilowatts in the city of Kehra, in the northern part of the country.

Enefit Volt has embarked on a major expansion of its electric car charging network, in order to contribute to the breakthrough of clean transport. According to Kert Pääbo, Business Development Manager at Enefit Volt, it is important to cooperate with service providers like shopping centres, accommodation establishments and other companies where charging stations are most used.

“We have developed standard packages for our partners and are ready to cover a significant portion of the investment to create the charging capability. This is what we did with Kehra Business Centre, which approached us with the desire to cooperate. We agreed that the whole project, like the chargers and their installation, would be financed by Enefit Volt. They, however, provided the free capacity,” he said.

In the future, it will be possible to install a second charger of the same type in the car park. “Preparations for subsequent charging stations have already been made,’” Mr Pääbo continued.

According to him, it is good to see that Estonians’ interest in electric cars is growing. “As the share of electric cars increases, the more important it is for users that key locations, such as grocery stores and shopping centres, have charging facilities,” he added. “Over time, this may become a deciding factor in choosing one place over another. Companies that understand this now will gain more customers in the long run.”
