South Holland County Council has opened three new electric vehicle charging points.
“We have taken into account the growing demand for electric and hybrid vehicles and are pleased to introduce new charging points throughout the area. We have tried to make them more accessible and attractive to those who are considering buying an electric car or a hybrid,” said Count Anthony Casson, responsible for public protection.
Electric vehicle charging points have now been installed at Snowden Fields Pavilion, Thorney Road, Crowland, Curlew Centre, Bridge Road, Sutton Bridge and Holbeach Community Centre, Fishpond Lane, Holbeach.
The Zero Emission Vehicle Authority has provided the bulk of the funding under the Residential Street Glasses Scheme.
The new 7 kW charge point provides a full charge overnight without having to pay for parking.
Each charging point is a two-socket unit serving two parking spaces and will also be available throughout the day with a standard parking fee.
