Telford & Wrekin Council’s electric vehicle (EV) charging strategy, has set out the pathway to support EV users with accessible charge points across the Borough with an initial £100,000 investment.

Latest update from Telford and Wrekin Council Newsroom:

The strategy, submitted to cabinet today (Thursday, July 14) supports the council’s climate change plan by encouraging the roll out of EV through a charging network to improve residents’ quality of life through noise reduction and further improved air quality. 

By the end of 2021, there were 1,613 EV registered in the borough and last year saw the biggest UK annual increase in the number of registrations, with more than 395,000 battery-electric cars registered, showing a growth of 92 per cent on 2020.
