Drivers to benefit from £20 million EV chargepoint boost - according to UK Government
The UK Government has announced that drivers will have access to more than 1,000 new electric vehicle chargepoints across the country.
More than 1,000 new electric vehicle chargepoints will be installed in a new pilot, as part of a wider £450 million scheme. Chargepoints will be built across 9 local authorities across England, including Durham, Nottinghamshire, and Suffolk.
Through the innovative Local EV Infrastructure (LEVI) pilot scheme, local authorities and industry will work together to create new, commercial EV charging infrastructure for residents, from faster on-street chargepoints to larger petrol station-style charging hubs.
The rollout supports the government’s drive to encourage more motorists to go electric, which can save drivers money on fuel and running costs, and improve air quality as the country moves towards net zero.
The scheme will help residents without private driveways to have better access to EV chargers, as well as growing the charging network across the country, supporting the nation’s uptake of zero emission vehicles and enabling more people to drive and charge without fear of being caught short, no matter where they are.
