First public charge points open in Henley


Henley-on-Thames has had its first public electric vehicle charge points opened, with the two Pod Point units unveiled on Friday 9th September by the town’s mayor, Julian Brookes.

Located at David Bray Motor Engineers Ltd on Greys Road, the two points are free to use for members of the public for up to two hours. Commenting on the installation, Vikki Bray, director of customer services, David Bray Motor Engineers Ltd, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer this service to the local community.

“Electric vehicles are the future of transport and we are seeing more and more on the roads in the area. It is important to us to encourage our existing customers to make the move over to EV and by installing free to use points, we can help do that.”

Installed by Pod Point, company founder, Erik Fairbairn said: “We can only applaud David Bray Motor Engineers Ltd and the town of Henley for putting an infrastructure in place in order to encourage more people to make the move to EV. Although, this is just another small step on a long journey for the category. We want to have a Pod Point in everywhere people park for an hour or more.”

Pod Point has manufactured and sold more than 20,000 electric vehicle charge points, and EV drivers have covered more than 12 million miles of zero-tailpipe emission motoring thanks to power from the company’s units.
