Council works to upgrade electrical charging points across city centre

COVENTRY City Council are working to upgrade the electric vehicle charging facilities dotted around the city for EV drivers.

The project, which is being worked in conjunction with ChargePoint Services, includes the removal of seven Chargemaster chargers which were left over from the Plugged in Places legacy project.

The current chargers are being replaced with the installation of seven new twin socket 7kW chargers connected to the GeniePoint Network.

Two new chargers will be situated in Croft Road and Little Park Street, and three chargers have been installed at the Memorial Park & Ride.

All charging points are now fully functional and available to use with two additional charging point locations in the city yet to be confirmed.

Alex Bamberg, managing director of ChargePoint Services ltd, said: “Coventry is geographically situated at the global centre of automotive engineering technology.

“Coventry City Council is majorly supportive of clean vehicle technology and we are very pleased to be supporting their efforts to provide recharging facilities to drivers visiting the city.”
