Thirty-five new electric vehicle charging points are to be installed on streets across North Lincolnshire with Government cash to further enhance the strategic green network.
The locations of the new chargers have not been set and the council would like to hear from residents who have electric or hybrid vehicles or are considering buying one but do not have access to off-street parking.
The boost to local green infrastructure is thanks to £98,000 of Government cash and a £70,000 investment from the private sector.
Cllr Rob Waltham, leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: “More and more people are going green and choosing electric vehicles to do their bit to go green. The council is committed to rolling out the infrastructure needed to support local people’s green choices.
“We are working hard with the Government and businesses and this work will continue until everyone has simple access to charge their green vehicles. These new chargers will be installed where off street parking is not available and will use the power supply from streetlights – now we need to know where residents would like to see them installed.”
The council has joined forces with the UK’s largest public charging operator ubitricity – a company which is working towards a zero-carbon future through delivering sustainable electricity for every electric vehicle.
The move is part of the council’s A Green Future environmental agenda and comes as more people are choosing electric vehicles helping the environment and saving on running costs.
