Council turns on chargers

South Holland District Council’s new electric vehicle charging points in Spalding have gone live.

The points are available in Vine Street and Victoria Street, as well as in the visitor section of the council’s Priory Road car park.

The charging points are all fast charging of between 7kW and 22kW, as well as being dual socket units, allowing two cars to be charged at one charging station at the same time.

Charging will cost 30p/kWh and can be paid through the InCharge app or using a freely issued RFID charge card or tag.

The points will be active 24 hours a day for people to use, although normal parking charges will still apply to anyone using the spaces in Victoria Street or Vine Street.

As an introductory offer to give people time to familiarise themselves with using the new points, the council and installers Vattenfall are offering free charging until Saturday, February 1.

In this offer, users can top up their vehicle for just the price of a normal car park ticket.

Further points are planned for Holbeach, Crowland and Sutton Bridge.
