Government funding to be doubled for on-street charge points

The Government have stated that there will be an increase in funding for EV charging points on residential streets.

The increase in electric vehicle sales has caused the need for more charging points throughout the UK. The new £10 million budget will support the installation of the planned 3,600 points across the UK.

This not only comes as good news to UK residents with on-street parking but also meets the targets to increase charging points within the EU.

Not only are the Government looking to fund the installation of these points with this budget, they are also exploring how to make information on all points – including location and power – openly available to the public.

Sharing this information will help EV drivers easily locate and use reliable charging points, making the country a more EV friendly place to drive.
