Dundee City Council receives £22k grant for fast chargers
The funds will be used for two new 22kw fast chargers, which are planned to be sited at the Whitfield Life Services Centre and the West Housing Office and will be fully available to the public.
Environment convener Councillor Craig Melville said: ‘This is another important step in our commitment to environmentally friendly transport.
‘These additional charging points will help us to keep up the momentum for electric cars in Dundee by making them even more accessible.
‘An increase in the usage of electric vehicles helps combat poor air quality issues across the city, which is beneficial to everyone.
‘Hopefully more people will now be encouraged to go green and make the switch to electric vehicles.’
The environment committee will be asked to approve the proposed spend on Monday 27th October and will also discuss plans to replace seven diesel pool cars with electric vehicles.
