E. Leclerc going electric with Mobility Green

French supermarket chain E. Leclerc has announced that its central purchasing department has mandated the management of its 74 charging stations (148 charging points) to Mobility Green. This is for its operations in South West France. These charging points are set to be installed at the company’s premises in Castelnaudary (Aude department) during the second half of this year.

This move forms part of E. Leclerc’s decision to move its supply platform to the new site, which will employ some 350 persons. The company wishes to move towards electric mobility, and the charging points will service a fleet of 180 EVs. Mobility Green points out that such a large number of charging points on one site means that it has to monitor electricity usage in order not to perturb the overall electricity supply system, and to ensure that employees’ cars are fully charged before they return home.
