Free Electric Vehicle Charging Points For Richmondshire Residents
Monday, Aug 4, 2014
Richmondshire District Council has teamed up with Yorkshire Energy Partnership to offer free electric vehicle charging points for all residents with off-street parking.

The Government-funded ‘Electric Richmondshire’ scheme is only available until August 18, on a first come first served basis, so you need to act fast to take advantage of this opportunity.  Residents do not have to own or have access to an electric car.  Installing a charging point will future-proof your home, in case you – or future residents - choose to buy an electric car in the future.  The charging points are the size of a shoe box, and fix to an outside wall or your garage. 

The car charging points normally cost £1,800 to buy and install, but under this scheme they are fully funded by the Government’s Office of Low Emission Vehicles for domestic premises.

Cllr Jane Parlour, Member Spokesperson for Climate Change and Sustainable Development said: “Electric cars are becoming more popular, so it makes sense to take advantage of this offer.  It will enable people to consider this greener, cheaper-to-run option when they buy their next car - especially in this area where public transport is never likely to meet everybody’s needs.”

For more information or to claim your FREE electric car charging point, call Yorkshire Energy Partnership on 01904 545 020 - by  August 18, quoting ‘Electric Richmondshire’.
