Merseytravel installs 28 Evolt EV charge points
Intended to help promote public take-up of EVs, the new charge points include 14 available for public use at sites across Merseyside including rail stations, hospitals and the Seacombe Ferry Terminal.
A further 14 have been strategically placed at sites of importance for the local authority, such as council buildings and NHS depots.
The charge points comprise a mix of both 7kW dual wallmount and 7kW standard dual posts and have been installed in the first phase of Recharge, the LCR’s scheme to encourage the public and the local authorities to simultaneously decrease their carbon footprints.
Justin Meyer, general manager of Evolt, comented: “We have developed a significant relationship with the LCR, helped by our experience of dealing with local councils across the country, and are now the EV charge point supplier of choice in the City Region.” The LCR, which includes seven local authorities, has also recently been awarded funding by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles to introduce 23 ultra low emission vehicles into its fleets over the coming year.
