In Vantaa, at K-citymarket Tammisto, customers can charge their vehicles with solar energy. Electricity for the store’s charging points is produced by Finland’s largest property-specific solar utility on the roof of K-citymarket Tammisto.
"The recharging times of vehicles vary slightly, which is due to their different charging capacities. The chargers' maximum charging rate is 3 x 32A, which means that at best, a travel distance of nearly 100 kilometres is possible from a one-hour charge", says Engineering Manager Jari Suuronen.
There is a space reserved for a charging point, or a charging point is built in all of the K-Group’s new building and renovation projects. Kesko's partner in the charging system implementation is Plugit Finland Oy.
