Charge Point for Electric Vehicles

Published by: , on:

New Charge Points installed in Accrington

The county council has been working in partnership with a BP Chargemaster to provide several locations where drivers of electric vehicles can charge when they are in the Lancashire area.  As part of the partnership the county council is providing an initial 150 parking bays, either at the side of the road or in our own car parks, where charging facilities can be provided.

The county council is installing two different types of charge units. These will include 50 kWh rapid charge points which will allow most vehicles to take a full charge in less than an hour and 7 kWh charge points that are more suited to dwell times of 2 hours or longer.  The mix of these units will depend on location, power supply and demand.

Across Hyndburn so far five units have been installed.  They can be found at the following locations:

  • St James’ Street, Accrington – 1x Rapid (50kWh)
  • Town Hall Street, Great Harwood – 2x F7 (7kWh)
  • Hartley Street, Oswaldtwistle – 2x F7 (7kWh)
