Wirral Council to install 40 new EV charging points

A pilot project will see on-street electric vehicle (EV) charging points, installed by SSE Enterprise, in Wirral for the first time.

TransportandEnergy.com reports that Wirral Council is about to start work on installing 40 new charging points in parts of Wallasey and Hoylake to make it easier for owners of electric or hybrid vehicles to stay charged up and to encourage more people to consider moving away from petrol and diesel.

The £100,000 scheme is being funded by a grant from OZEV – the Office for Zero Emissions Vehicles, formerly known as OLEV – and Wirral Council.

The charging points will be installed by the council’s contractor, SSE Enterprise, and residents will be able to use them once they are all installed and switched on from October this year.
