Electric vehicle (EV) drivers using car parks around Pembrokeshire are being reminded by the local authority that numerous locations across the county now offer dedicated charge-points that are ready to use.
Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority and Pembrokeshire County Council have worked in close partnership to ensure there are plenty of facilities available to members of the public. There are currently 18 sites across the county where EV owners can easily power up their cars.
According to Wales 247, Cabinet Member for Infrastructure, Councillor Phil Baker, commented:
“As a Council we are committed to being net zero by 2030 and electric vehicles form one of the strands of this work in relation to de-carbonisation of transport.”
Those interested in deploying EV charging facilities in the UK include not only local authorities, but homeowners and businesses as well. Enterprises looking to add EV charge-points via professional electrical installations in Chester, Pembrokeshire and other places around the UK should use certified electricians to fit equipment safely.
The designated EV charging points are based in centrally placed car parks in order to enable drivers to visit attractions and businesses around the local area while they recharge their electric battery packs.
While all of the locations support ‘Fast’ EV charging, two of the sites, Haverfordwest County Hall Car Park and Tenby Multi Storey Car Park offer ‘Rapid’ charging as well. By the end of 2021, the local authority intends to roll out EV charging options to another 11 locations across Pembrokeshire.
