Rutland County Council has launched a survey to help identify possible locations for new on street electric vehicle (EV) charge points around the County.
The Council is working in partnership with Midlands Connect and several other local authorities across the region to deliver electric vehicle charge points within their respective boundaries. This work is being carried out as part of a national Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (LEVI) project, funded by the Government’s Office for Zero Emissions Vehicles (OZEV).
The online survey asks for feedback from owners of electric cars and those who are thinking about making the switch from petrol and diesel vehicles. The aim is to get a better understanding of the local demand for on-street electric vehicle (EV) charge points and charging requirements, so the Council can develop a plan for a network of EV charge points that meets people’s needs.
The survey is now live and will run until 5.00pm on Monday 4th March. Residents, business owners and people who visit the county are all being encouraged to take part.
“The number of electric vehicles on our roads is increasing all that time, which means more demand for charging points around the County. Feedback from drivers is critical if we are going understand local EV charging needs and will help us put an effective plan in place to grow Rutland’s charging network. While we can’t guarantee a charge point outside every house or on each road around the County, our aim is to meet demand by providing charge points in the best locations possible.”
