ChargePoint Services and Havant Borough Council have partnered to install three new rapid chargers across the borough.
GeniePoint chargers (50kW+) have already been put in at South Street, Emsworth, and Tidworth Road, Leigh Park, with one at Wellington Way, Waterlooville, due to go live at the beginning of March.
Jane Devlin, energy strategy manager for Havant Borough Council, said: “Delivering public-facing electric vehicle infrastructure is crucial if we are to see the switch away from polluting petrol & diesel vehicles.
“Not everyone can have a charger at home, so making these chargers accessible in council-owned car parks with a competitive tariff opens up the possibility of owning an electric vehicle to more people.
“The three locations in Havant Borough Council will help make the switch to an electric car or van a realistic and cost-effect option.”
Alex Bamberg, managing director, ChargePoint Services, added: “ChargePoint Services are highly focused on supporting local councils in their efforts to provide infrastructure to facilitate the change to electric vehicle transportation in their area.
“With each additional local authority providing this critical service, the GeniePoint Network spreads even further across the UK providing access to the UK’s fast growing, reliable rapid charging network.”
To use the new chargers, people will need to join the free GeniePoint Network prior to connecting their vehicles.
Once signed up, the GeniePoint Network offers a tariff of £0.30p/kWh, plus £1.00 connection fee.
There are now over 25 GeniePoint chargers located across Hampshire making travelling around and across the county.
