As part of Council drive to encourage electric cars
35 new car charging points at eleven new sites have been made available in Wandsworth.
By the end of this year the Council plans to install at least another 50 charging points at 20 additional locations, subject to local consultation with the intention of making the owning and running of an electric car a much more attractive and viable option for more residents.
The charging points each have their own parking space and can only be used by electric vehicles whilst being charged. Non-electric vehicles will not be able to use them and face being issued with a ticket if they do.
The 35 new charging points are at these locations.
• Brudenell Road, Tooting (3)
• Haldane Place, Earlsfield (5)
• Openview, Earlsfield (3)
• Prince of Wales Drive, Battersea (3)
• Rectory Lane, Tooting (3)
• Bramfield Road, Battersea (2)
• Clonmore Street, Southfields (3)
• Coverton Road, Tooting (2)
• Grant Road, Battersea (5)
• Sistova Road, Balham (3)
• St John’s Avenue, Putney (3)
These latest power points have been installed as part of the Council’s partnership with Source London and also with electricity company SSE Enterprise.
Customers who wish to use the new charging points will need to register with Source London. The new charge points can be reserved up to 40 minutes in advance. Fees and details of how to reserve a space can be found on Source London’s FAQ page.
A number of other private companies have provided publically accessible charging points within Wandsworth and across the capital. These locations can be found online.
