Visit the Portsmouth City Council website for the latest news about EV charger reinstatement following the decision to disconnect our on-street charging points for electric vehicles after safety concerns were raised by Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN).
As part of our commitment to become a cleaner, greener and safer city, we are planning to expand our city-wide provision of electric vehicle (EV) charge points in residential areas.
Electric vehicle ownership is on the rise and we recognise the need for residents to be able to charge their plug-in vehicles conveniently, close to their homes, where off-street parking is not available. By installing charge points on-street, using a safe and unique charging method, residents are able to park their vehicle in a marked bay and charge via a lamp post column or slimline bollard.
Electricity is provided by different suppliers, including ubitricity and Joju, and is charged on a tariff or pay-as-you-go basis.
Residents who already use an electric vehicle or plan to buy one soon can request a charge point by getting in touch with our transport planning team.
