Charge points installed at London railway stations
All units are GE DuraStation dual-socket charging points, networked via a GPRS data connection and RFID complaint with the Source London Plugged-in Places membership scheme, which already includes over 1,300 public access charging points.
There are three at Victoria Station, and five at Euston, backing up a benefits package for rail travellers which includes a reduced price parking season ticket available for electric vehicle drivers at any Network Rail site.
Liz Ratcliffe, account manager – car parking at Network Rail, said. 'Enabling our users to recharge their electric vehicles at the station car park facilitates their choice to use environmentally cleaner vehicles throughout their commute, not just for the train part of the journey, but door-to-door.'
John Mason, Transport for London director responsible for Source London, added: 'This will provide further options to members travelling outside London on rail services and guarantees they are never far away from a charge point when they need one.'
