Spread of charging points across Wandsworth makes e-motoring the smart option
Published: Friday 27th October 17
Drivers in Wandsworth who want to play a part in improving air quality can choose to ‘go electric’ now that the borough is home to 35 more charging points at 11 new sites.
Providing easily accessible charging equipment makes it easier for car owners to switch to e-motoring.
And by the end of this year the plan is to install at least another 50 charging points at 20 additional locations, subject to local consultation. This will make owning and running an electric car a much more attractive and viable option for thousands more Wandsworth residents.
The charging points each have their own parking space and can only be used by electric vehicles whilst being charged. Non-electric vehicles should not use them and face being issued with a ticket if they do.
The 35 new charging points are at these locations.
• Brudenell Road, Tooting (3)
• Haldane Place, Earlsfield (5)
• Openview, Earlsfield (3)
• Prince of Wales Drive, Battersea (3)
• Rectory Lane, Tooting (3)
• Bramfield Road, Battersea (2)
• Clonmore Street, Southfields (3)
• Coverton Road, Tooting (2)
• Grant Road, Battersea (5)
• Sistova Road, Balham (3)
• St John’s Avenue, Putney (3)
These latest power points have been installed as part of the council’s partnership with Source London and also with electricity company SSE Enterprise.
Customers who wish to use the new charging points will need to register with Source London. The new charge points can be reserved up to 40 minutes in advance. Fees and details of how to reserve a space can be found on Source London’s FAQ page.
A number of other private companies have provided publically accessible charging points within Wandsworth and across the capital. These locations can be found online.
