Chargemaster will start rolling out a network of 150 public electric vehicle charging points in Lancashire early next year.
The vehicle charging specialist won a bid by Lancashire County Council to the Department for Transport’s Highway Maintenance Challenge Fund.
Chargemaster will provide 18 of its Ultracharge rapid chargers and 66 dual-socket fast chargers, for use with a standard Type 2 public charging cable.
The first units will be installed early next year and will be included on the POLAR network, which now has over 5,500 charging points across the UK.
David Martell, Chargemaster chief executive, said: “There are already over 1,000 electric vehicle drivers in Lancashire and that number is expected to grow considerably over the coming years.
“We are committed to ensuring that EV drivers have access to charging points right across the country, so we will be improving coverage across the region.”
