Sheffield business partners with Zest to bring electric vehicle chargers to popular destination

The A & S Leisure Group Limited has secured investment from Zest, one of the UK’s fastest growing electric vehicle (EV) charging point operators, to provide and operate four rapid charging sockets at Napoleons Casino in Sheffield. The new facility is due to open at the end of March.

Napoleons Casino Sheffield is located in a high traffic area, with Owlerton Greyhound Stadium and the OEC Sheffield situated next-door. The A61 – one of the main routes into Sheffield city centre and Hillsborough Leisure Centre – are just a few hundred metres away. The 75kW rapid chargers run on 100% renewable energy and will serve both customers and passing drivers.

Mark Allen, CEO at The A & S Leisure Group Limited quote: “We’re serious about supporting our customers as they switch to electric vehicles, and about being part of the drive to net zero scheme. The Zest model was of particular interest because of their green credentials and commitment to a long-term operation, providing a reliable and hassle-free service for our customers.’

Robin Heap, Zest CEO: “It’s been great to work with The A & S Leisure Group Limited to provide more charging infrastructure to an underserved area of Sheffield. Destinations that act now – to meet the charging needs of customers and passing drivers – are those that will thrive in the ongoing electric migration.”

Zest provides and operates EV charging infrastructure for commercial real estate and local authorities across the UK. Its projects are backed by the Government’s Charging Infrastructure Investment Fund (CIIF). This means Zest can invest in larger projects that anticipate future demand, act quickly to deliver essential EV infrastructure, and make a tangible contribution to net zero.

As part of its commitment to work with local businesses, Zest engaged Jones Electric, of South Yorkshire, to carry out the specialist installation works. Charging sessions and payments can be completed by using the Zest app which also gives access to 24/7 AA customer support.
