Two new electric vehicle chargers are now available for drivers in Stevenage town centre. We are delighted to be managing these chargers for Stevenage Borough Council, which are already live and available to use on our network. You can find the chargers, along with all of the Electric Blue charger network, on ZapMap, with live charging data.
The EV-link chargepoints in the Swingate car park were installed by project partner ElectrAssure.
Promoting Electric Vehicles
Stevenage is actively encouraging the transition away from ICE vehicles, by providing accessible charging infrastructure to increase EV uptake. These two fast chargers offer four sockets for electric vehicle charging, and are ideally located for shoppers and commuters. Once locations are agreed upon, further chargers will be installed before March of next year, as part of this ongoing project. Full 24 hour support for using the chargers and app is available by calling 0330 111 0078.
“On behalf of the Stevenage Borough Council, I am very pleased to be working with Electric Blue and ElectrAssure on this initiative, both of whom are Hertfordshire-based enterprises. We know that residents are looking to invest in quieter, cleaner and lower carbon modes of transport, so the installation of more Electric Vehicle (EV) charging points combined with our flexible approach to new infrastructure has to be seen as a positive. Enabling more people to switch to clean electric vehicles is one of our considerations in our “Future Town – Future Transport” strategy for addressing the climate emergency and delivering a carbon neutral Stevenage by 2030.”
Lloyd Briscoe, Executive Member for the Economy Enterprise and Transport
The new charge points will be on free vend initially, to welcome their active use in Stevenage Borough.
Expanding Hertfordshire Infrastructure
**We, at Electric Blue, are delighted to be working with Stevenage Borough Council as they work towards their zero carbon goals following their climate emergency announcement in mid-2019, both as a Council and in the provision of accessible infrastructure for the community. As a Herts-born company ourselves, Electric Blue is thrilled that Stevenage is yet another authority to be joining the Hertfordshire network in the drive towards a clean air future.**
Trev Watt, Senior EV Solutions Specialist
With Electric Blue beginning our journey from St Albans, Hertfordshire, we are delighted to see the continuation of EV solutions expanding in this region. We are extremely proud to be growing our network, which is contributing to reduced air pollution and quieter streets, for all local residents to enjoy. With three out of ten councils in Hertfordshire welcomed into the Electric Blue network, it is exciting to be a part of this growing drive towards zero emission transport.
