Vattenfall has announced a partnership with South Norfolk Council to install and operate 20 EV charge points in the region at five of the local authority’s car parks.
The Swedish energy group will run the points under its InCharge network, and all will be powered by 100% renewable electricity. Access is via InCharge app or RFID card on a pay-as-you-go basis.
Anthony Hinde, Vattenfall’s Managing Director for InCharge, said: “We launched InCharge in Britain earlier this year, so we are pleased, six-months later, to be installing our first ever InCharge public charging stations in Britain.
“Powered with 100% renewable energy from Vattenfall’s British wind farms, drivers using InCharge in South Norfolk can go electric with homegrown wind power.”
South Norfolk Council Cabinet member Keith Kiddie said: “Working with our partners, South Norfolk Council is once again leading the way in ensuring that our residents and businesses can benefit from modern technology.
“We are providing a network of charging points, in our car parks, to encourage and enable electric vehicle owners to shop in our market towns. We will also be giving our residents, living in town centres, the opportunity to consider using clean energy and buying an electric car, as they will now have access to charging points overnight.”
The charge points will be put up on Zap-Map once they go live. Until then, find existing public EV charge points by clicking the button below.
