I posted recently about the increased charges for parking in Greenwich but a different type of charging is now on offer at locations across SE10.
Owners of electric cars can now charge their vehicles at new on-street 'Elektrobays' that have been installed in Blissett Street, Horseferry Place and John Harrison Way. There are two further charging points within the Sainsbury's car park.
According to a council press release, funding for the charging points has come from TFL and a successful council bid for Government Infrastructure funding.
Cllr Rajwant Sidhu, Greenwich Council’s Cabinet Member for Greener Greenwich, said:
“Electric vehicles create typically 40% less carbon dioxide emissions than a petrol equivalent. They are an increasingly popular transport choice, and the development of a wider network of charging points helps make them even more attractive.”
