A total of 27 neighbourhoods will now receive cutting-edge rapid electric vehicle (EV) charging hubs throughout East Devon, Exeter and Teignbridge.
The recent agreement follows the highways committee of Devon County Council (DCC) awarding the initiative a green light. The new charging stations are another phase in scheme led by the private sector that involves Regen, ZPN Energy, Co Cars, Gamma Energy and DCC working cooperatively.
Jointly funded by the government’s Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) and Innovate UK, the new scheme’s ambition is to deliver a dedicated network of EV charge points across both Exeter and its surrounding areas over a two-year period.
The three sites planned for East Devon include Exmouth’s Halsdon Road and St Andrews Road and Cranbrook’s Younghayes Road.
Councils and local businesses planning electrical installations in Chester, Exeter and other parts of the UK can rely on qualified electricians to complete all work required. From state-of-the-art security systems to the latest rapid charge-points for EVs, electrical contractors can ensure equipment is fitted properly so it works effectively.
The new rapid charging solutions are designed by ZPN Energy, and Exeter’s Gamma Energy has developed the advanced renewable energy technology required to power the electrical equipment.
The recent effort is part of a nationwide drive to cut carbon emissions and enhance current air quality. This supports the UK government’s announcement that it will ban the sales of brand-new vans and cars powered solely by diesel and petrol from the year 2030 onwards.
