Government funding of up to £1.8million has been awarded to the West Sussex Chargepoint Network, which is providing electric vehicle (EV) chargepoints for residents in areas which have no off-street parking.

The award will part-fund up to 450 on-street chargepoints and 100 in public car parks. The remaining installation costs will be covered by EV chargepoint company Connected Kerb, one of the UK’s leading providers of EV charging infrastructure solutions.

The new wave of installations will provide a significant boost to the growing West Sussex Chargepoint Network, which is supported by West Sussex County Council and all the districts and borough councils in the county.

This extra funding award by the Department for Transport is excellent news and will further boost what is already the UK’s largest rollout of electric vehicle chargepoints by a local authority. 

Proposed locations from the initial phase of the on-street chargepoint rollout can be viewed on the Connected Kerb website.

The project is fully funded by Connected Kerb, meaning zero cost to the councils.
