Twenty new electric charging stations for hybrid and electric cars are now live across Ashfield.
As part of the Go Ultra Low project led by Nottingham City Council, these new additions will offer more places for eco-friendly drivers to recharge their vehicles across Ashfield.
The twenty new charge points are located at four locations across the District, with eight in the visitor’s car park of the Council Offices in Kirkby; eight in New Street car park, Sutton; a twin rapid point in the car park at Kings Mill Reservoir and a twin rapid point in Piggins Croft car park, Hucknall.
Cllr Jason Zadrozny said: “I am very excited that the new electrical charge points are now open. We are hoping that we can encourage the use of green energy and sustainable living across the District.”
The new charging points have been introduced following a grant from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles to encourage people to join the “electric car revolution”. Nottingham City Council was awarded £6 million to improve infrastructure for ultra low emission vehicles across Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, Derby and Derbyshire.
Cllr Jason Zadrozny added “Ashfield District Council is committed to ensuring that there is plenty of availability and opportunity for those that drive eco-friendly vehicles to recharge as and when they need as part of our green agenda. We will continue to work closely with Go Ultra Low Nottingham to ensure that these stations are maintained and easily accessible to the public 24/7.”
