The latest of thirteen planned EV charger installations is now live in Barnt Green.

The new charger is the tenth to be installed across the district and is located on Fiery Hill Road.

The EV charger is part of the council’s government funded project to assist taxi drivers and residents to charge their electric vehicles whilst out and about in the district, as well as encouraging more people to take up the use of electric vehicles.

Since launching the first charger back in May 2021, the ten chargers have:

  • Been used over 5,000 times
  • Dispensed 90,000Kwh of renewable electricity
  • Prevented 70 Tonnes of Carbon emissions from being released into the atmosphere

Portfolio Holder for Climate Change, Cllr Michael Thompson, said: “With fuel prices soaring, more people are being encouraged to make the move to an electric car and it’s becoming a much more viable option as more infrastructure is put in place. I hope our residents, taxi drivers and the environment will continue to benefit from this new charging location, as well as those already in place – the statistics speak for themselves!”

Robert Cholmondeley, Chairman of Barnt Green Parish Council, said: “We are pleased to be part of this scheme which has provided the first charging point in Barnt Green. It is an important step in delivering a new infrastructure for residents and commuters.”
