Kinver leads the way with Electric Vehicle charging points
Kinver Parish Council has installed the first public EV charging points in the area, on the High Street car park. The Fast Charge EV points are available to the general public, as well as to local residents. The installation was part funded by Government grant, with the purpose of ensuring that residents without off-street parking, can still charge their electric vehicles near to their homes.
The Parish Council spokesman said “We want to do all we can to tackle carbon emissions, by bringing forward practical solutions. That’s why Kinver Parish Council supports drivers to replace older polluting vehicles with cleaner ones. There are no alternative public charging points within 5 miles, and provision of EV charging in the local area is well below average. South Staffordshire has declared a Climate Emergency, and this project is one small contribution to encouraging the low-carbon lifestyles which are the future. PC have attained plastic free status as have many shops in Kinver and we are working together with the Kinver Eco Collective group to make Kinver a plastic free environment, nature friendly and green village.”
The charge points were installed by local company Car Charger Ltd, who are also involved in installing workplace charge points in South Staffordshire’s new Codsall Community hub.
