Four 7kWh charging points for electric vehicles are now available for use at Market Yard Car Park, Edenbridge.
The Town Council is delighted to be part of a partnership project through Kent Parish Networks to install charge-points, with funding from Kent County Council, a government grant and a contribution from the Town Council CIL funds (money we have received from developers.)
As one of the car parks the Town Council owns, Edenbridge councillors identified Market Yard as a suitable site to install the charge-points. The electric points are slow-charging – ideal for residents or visitors wanting to top up their charge, or for those wanting to charge a full battery overnight. It’s great to see that some residents and visitors have already been using the chargers, which went live mid-January.
The cost per kWh for users is 50p and the charge speed is 7kWh per hour. Payment is through a mobile app, which users can access by scanning a QR code.
