Electric vehicle charge points
The charge points will open up EV ownership to residents who don't have access to off-street parking, whilst also providing a place for drivers to top-up on electricity whilst visiting nearby shops.
We secured grant funding to support these installations through the On-Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme (ORCS) and the Energy Saving Trust (EST) provided support for the bid. The three charge points were part of the first phase of installation and more charge points will be installed at other locations by the end of spring 2020.
EV charging locations
There are three live charge points located in the following car parks:
- Priory Road, Council Offices, visitors' car park, Spalding (22kW)
- Vine Street Car Park, Spalding (7kW)
- Victoria Street Car Park, Spalding (7kW)
EV drivers are required to provide their own charging cables as the charging points are untethered.
The charging points are all fast charging of between 7kW and 22kW, as well as being double-headed which allows two cars to be charged by one point, at the same time.
More EV charging locations can be found on ZapMap to find your nearest charge point.
EV charging costs
As an introductory offer, chargepoint users will be able to charge for free. Once this offer comes to an end the price will be 0.30p per/kWh.
If using the charge points at Vine Street or Victoria Street, you will also need to pay for parking.
Payments can be made by using the app or by ordering a free charge card or tag:
