The largest electric vehicle (EV) charging site in Wales is set to open next month.

Located in the seaside resort of Rhyl, next to the railway station, it will boast 36 charging points and become one of the largest in the UK, not just Wales.

The local council is hopeful that it not only helps the area in achieving its emission targets but also brings more visitors to the area and generate income that way.

Councillor Barry Mellor from Denbighshire County Council said: “This charging hub will support our important climate change work and be of clear benefit to nearby households who don’t have the capability for off-road charging facilities.

“We also hope this hub will help encourage more visitors to come to Rhyl on the knowledge they have this facility to charge their vehicles and also be an asset to commuters arriving at the town to use the nearby train station by enabling them to park and charge.”

The Rhyl site becomes the largest to open in the UK since the 42-charging point station in Oxfordshire was unveiled in July.
