North Northamptonshire Council commits to EV charging investment

North Northamptonshire Council has announced its intention to install almost 100 new, on-street, electric vehicle charging sockets, across sites all over the region.

21 new sites will hold the 80 new sockets that will be made available for use y residents from the beginning of 2023, with the sites that are being proposed for use under review by residents from the borough.

The project is aiming to increase the availability of public EV charging, with the main ambition being to improve the convenience of public charging for those who are unable to charge their electric vehicles at home or on a private driveway. In turn, it is hoped that this will encourage the further adoption of electric vehicles ahead of the 2030 deadline for the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles that was set by the UK Government.

Councillor Graham Lawman from North Northamptonshire Council, said:

“We’re delighted to provide these additional charge points, in order to help accelerate the move to more sustainable methods of transport.

“Without the infrastructure in place, it would be impossible to accommodate the growing popularity of EVs in our area and beyond. The fully-funded solution means there is zero cost to the tax payer – of added importance in today’s climate.”

The charge points will be installed, operated, maintained and funded by Liberty Charge, the UK’s fastest growing charge point operator. This will also be supported by delivery partner Virgin Media O2. Liberty Charge already maintain and fund 82 charge points in Northamptonshire, which means that the number will rise to over 160 chargers.

CEO of Liberty Charge, Neil Isaacson, added:

“It’s fantastic to build on our partnership with North Northamptonshire Council, and we are proud to continue in our work to electrify the council area. It’s great to work with a council that is committed to supporting their residents in moving to EVs.”
