Electric vehicles and charging points
The council is taking action to achieve net zero through the adoption of renewable and clean sources of energy. The rollout of charging points across the county supports the A Green Future: Our Plan for Positive Change.
Further charging points for electric vehicles are now being installed across North Lincolnshire with more points being planned over the next few years. Many new developments will now include electric vehicle charging points.

Why are we rolling out charging points?
- The Government has committed the UK to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. This includes energy, industry, and transport.
- The Government has announced a commitment that no new petrol or diesel cars or vans will be sold from 2030 onwards.
- To help us to meet the vision and objectives of A Green Future: Our Plan for Positive Change.
Benefits of electric vehicles
- Reduced pollution mile for mile, with the ability to have a true zero emission vehicle.
- Reduced cost of refuelling: costing only around £8.40 to fully charge an electric vehicle with a 200-mile range at home. Find out information on the cost of charging an electric vehicle.
- Reduction in noise pollution, as the vehicles are almost silent, enhancing the tranquillity of the environment.
