If you currently drive a petrol or diesel vehicle, you could save money and cut pollutants by switching to electric.
These vehicles produce no air pollution emissions and are extremely beneficial in terms of improving air quality. The distance that electric vehicles can travel is gradually increasing due to improvements in battery technology.
Electric vehicles are exempt from the congestion charging scheme, pay no road tax (Vehicle Excise Duty) and benefit from reduced company car tax.
A hybrid is a vehicle that normally has a diesel or a petrol engine and an electric motor.
Owners of electric vehicles are now able to charge their cars at some council operated car parks.
Using the charge points
You will need to register with Source London the London wide electric vehicle charging point network to use the charging points.
Blue Point London owns and has responsibility for the Source London charge points.
For more about registration and charging your vehicle, go to the Source London website.
The network is operated by Chargemaster PLC.
The Polar Network offers a range of charging infra-structure, including rapid chargers which are not currently provided by Source London. They also offer a pay as you go option called POLAR instant.
For more information please visit the chargemaster website
The POLAR and Source London networks are separate and being a member of one does not allow use of the other. If you are interested in purchasing an electric or hybrid vehicle but would like further advice please contact email@example.com
Requesting a chargepoint
The council is not currently accepting requests for additional locations. As the EV Charging Pilot Scheme develops it may be opened up again for residents to submit requests so please check back regularly.
