Latest update (December 2022)

BP Pulse, who are the Council's current commercial provider reports many of our existing EV charging units are offline, out of action, and all are un-repairable due to their age and parts no longer being available from the supplier.

The Council has tendered the replacement of all charging units, with a new provider Joju Solar being selected for the contract. Sites have now been surveyed and works have started. The majority of the fast charging units should be replaced by mid-2023, with the rapid charging units being replaced last due to their availability.
