Oxford City Council to use OLEV funding to implement 100 charging stations
Aided by an £800,000 grant from the OLEV Go Ultra Low Cities funding pot, the City Council has already met with residents interested in having an electric charging station installed in their street. The city and county councils are also trialling chargers from different providers.
The best solutions will then be rolled out in 100 sites in residential streets across Oxford, which is expected to take place in 2019.
Earlier this year, the city was awarded seed funding for EV-specific projects under the OLEV Go Ultra Low Cities scheme.
Councillor John Tanner, Executive Board Member for A Clean and Green Oxford, said: “Electric vehicles are the future so get switched on. We want to make it as easy as possible for Oxford residents to plug into the new technologies, save money and help the environment.”
