Although there is an increasing number of electric vehicles on the roads, one of the main barriers currently preventing Oxfordshire residents making the switch to electric vehicles is a perception of a lack of charging infrastructure.
Park and Charge Oxfordshire aims to change this perception by giving residents and visitors access to reliable and easy to usee EV charging hubs and a wealth of resources and real life experiences to give confidence and encourage others to make the switch.
Fast 7-22kW EV charging hubs have now been installed in 20 council-owned car parks across the county, giving residents with no off-street parking the ability to park for free overnight and charge their electric vehicles with competitive prices.
Park and Charge Oxfordshire is an initiative funded by The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles and Innovate UK, and delivered by Oxfordshire County Council, Zeta Specialist Lighting, Urban Integrated [ui!]uk, EZ Charge and University of Oxford.
The project has been delivered in close partnership with Cherwell District Council, West Oxfordshire District Council, South Oxfordshire District Council and the Vale of the White Horse District Council as hosts of the Park and Charge EV hubs.
