Electric Vehicle Charging Points – update on installations

EV-charging-points-BANNER
This page shows the progress being made to install public-use Electric Vehicle (EV) charging points at Council car parks across Rhondda Cynon Taf. During May 2022, the Council announced it has secured funding to install the facilities at 31 car parks, having worked closely with the Cardiff Capital Region.

An important part of the Council’s climate change commitment is promoting the use of electric vehicles and providing EV charging facilities for residents unable to charge at home. The Council’s Electric Vehicle Charging Strategy covers the period 2021 to 2030, and is available to view online.

Electric vehicles significantly reduce the exhaust emissions that are produced in comparison to petrol and diesel vehicles, resulting in improved air quality.

The Council is also bidding for further funding to install even more EV charging points at additional locations beyond the 31 sites it has already secured funding for.

Information about the 31 sites

There will be more than 70 installations and they will be mix of 7kw-22kw fast charging points with many sites having multiple charging points. They will be installed and maintained by contractor Connected Kerb, with installations across all 31 sites completed in 2022.

The contractor has provided a Frequently Asked Questions page about the EV charging points being installed – ranging from how to charge a vehicle, to the length of time it takes and the price of use. The FAQs can be accessed here.

The section below will be regularly updated, as Connected Kerb starts work at different locations throughout the year:
