Big Zero Report 2023

Portsmouth City Council has announced installations of 62 on-street electric vehicle (EV) charging points throughout the city.

A rapid charger has also been added for taxis and is the first of the nine it aims to install to boost clean public transport.

The council partnered with JoJu Charging for the installations, which add to the previous 36 deployed by Ubitricity.

Councillor Lynne Stagg said: “We hope that the ability to charge outside your own home as a domestic user, or rapidly as part of your day as a trade user, will be a great incentive to join the revolution and reduce emissions further.

“When the time comes to replace your existing vehicle, we are making it easier for you to consider an electric vehicle, even if you don’t have a driveway. Whilst we understand they are not the complete solution for removing harmful emissions, they do produce much lower levels of pollution and have a place in making our air cleaner.”
