Local Electric Vehicle Charging Updates

Portsmouth On-street Charging Points

As part of a scheme that cost more than £100,000, largely covered by a government grant, 37 charge points were installed on 32 Portsmouth residential streets, offering electric vehicle drivers the opportunity to charge vehicles at home via a pay-as-you-go app.

The new charging points join existing electric vehicle charging point locations run by the Council at the Park and Ride car park, the Isambard Brunel multi-storey and the Clarence Esplanade car park. Plans are in place to install more points later in the year.
