Wednesday 29 May, 2024: Thirty-two new electric vehicle chargers have gone live as Hillingdon Council confirms its commitment to tackling climate change and creating a green and sustainable borough.

The new chargers are the first tranche to launch following the council's new partnership with providers, APCOA, as part of its pledge to deliver a full, accessible electric vehicle (EV) charging network across the borough by 2030. A further 14 charging points are due to go live later this year.

The total of 46 new chargers includes 24 in completely new locations as well as 22 which have replaced existing EV charging points which had reached end of life.

The network of 7-kilowatt chargers will soon by complemented by a further 14 rapid charging points (22-kilowatt), to make it even more convenient for residents to charge and get back on the road.

Funding has also been sourced to provide an additional 36 charging points in a second phase of delivery, to be installed once the electrical supplies have been confirmed. Feasibility and planning work is already underway to determine and finalise these locations.

The rollout is great news for Hillingdon residents who own, or are thinking of getting an EV, and even better for HillingdonFirstcardholders who will get a discounted rate when using the chargers, of 60p p/kwh, rather than 65p p/kwh.

  • Botwell Green Car Park, Hayes (x4)
  • Brandville Road Car Park, West Drayton (x4)
  • Fairfield Road Car Park, Yiewsley (x4)

Cllr Jonathan Bianco, Hillingdon Council's Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Property, Highways and Transport, said: "We're committed to making Hillingdon a green and sustainable borough and delivering on our promise to slash carbon emissions in line with the council's Climate Action Plan.

"Our new network of EV charging points uses the very latest technology to make them simple and easy to use and helps us future-proof our facilities to meet growing demand as more residents make the switch.

"Not everyone has a driveway or the option to charge their cars at home, so our expanding network will enable residents, and visitors, to top-up their vehicles in a convenient and affordable way."

The new chargers mark the council's commitment to its Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Strategy, which was announced in August 2023 and forms part of the council's strategic objectives, delivered as part of its Climate Action Plan.
