1,000 new electric vehicle charging points to be installed across the capital


London’s boroughs are super-charging the switch to electric vehicles by installing 1,000 new residential charging points across the capital.

Residential charging points are designed to charge electric vehicles at between 3-7 kilowatts per hour, ideal for an overnight charge.

Cllr Julian Bell, Chair of London Councils’ Transport and Environment Committee, said: “Extensive investment in London’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure is key to making Londoners feel confident about switching to cleaner, greener electric vehicles, which will help to reduce harmful emissions and ultimately improve London’s air quality.”
