Work to deliver a new electric vehicle charging hub in Portishead starts this week.
The charging hub, which will be conveniently located at Parish Wharf Leisure Centre, will allow electric vehicle (EV) owners to charge their cars in just 30 minutes.
With two rapid chargers, each of which can charge two vehicles at a time, the hub will double the number of charging points in Portishead town centre.
Electric vehicle owners will be able to use the leisure centre, visit nearby supermarkets or pop for a coffee at Portishead Marina, all while charging their car nearby.
As one of four charging hubs planned across the West of England, including Eastville Park Hub in Bristol which opened in 2019, the Portishead Hub is part of a wider project to promote the uptake of electric vehicles.
All four charging hubs will be on the Revive network, a council-owned public EV charging network in the West of England, which serves EV drivers in Bristol, North Somerset, BANES and South Gloucestershire. Funding for the charging hubs has come from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV), which awarded the four West of England authorities £7.1 million as part of the Go Ultra Low West (GULW) programme.
