The Irish branch of Lidl will install electric car charging stations at its stores across Ireland. 20 new and to be refurbished stores will be equipped with more than 40 charging points within the next six months.
The service, which will be free of charge for customers will make Lidl the largest network of electric vehicle chargers in the Irish supermarket sector.
“Business must act responsibly, and Lidl will lead the way by installing electric vehicle chargers in all new store builds and investing over €150,000 in our electric vehicle charging programme,” Alan Barry, of Lidl Ireland, explained.
Lidl has already installed electric vehicle charging points at its Rathfarnham, Drogheda and Swords stores.
It will retrofit the technology to its stores in Cabra, Tallaght, Glenageary, East Wall, Gorey, Wilton, Virginia, Magherafelt, Lurgan and Andersonstown.
