Ubitricity has announced that it will be expanding its network of streetlight EV charge points to Twickenham and Barnes.
The announcement was made on National Clean Air Day, 15 June, that the new points will be adding to the existing points in the London boroughs of Hounslow, Richmond, Westminster, and Kensington & Chelsea.
Ten new units will be installed in the two new locations, which will provide points for on-street EV charging.
The points draw on the same energy supply as the lamp-post and charging costs are recorded by the smart charger attached to the charging cable. The system has been designed for low-power charging for local residents and workers without access to off-street parking.
It is estimated to cost around £1,000 to install the unit and a smart meter charging cable.
Local authorities will be able to access funding from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles to cover part of this cost.
