Hampshire County Council launches on-street EV charge point pilot

Hampshire County Council has introduced 50 new on-street electric vehicle (EV) chargepoints in the areas of Eastleigh and Winchester as part of an innovative pilot scheme to be launched in March.

This forms part of the council’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions across the county,

The pilot involves the installation of two different types of on-street EV chargepoints  – streetlighting columns, which will be used in the Winchester trial and bollards which will be used in the Eastleigh trial.  This follows a successful funding bid to the Government’s Office for Zero Emission Vehicles, from which £125,000 grant was awarded for the project which was also funded by the County Council.
