Funding for Electric Vehicle Charging Points

Andrew welcomes an announcement that the government is providing extra funding for electric vehicle charging points in North Lincolnshire.

Andrew explains, "North Lincs Council has been awarded £925,000 Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (LEVI) capital funding to support charging infrastructure, which is in addition to £323,000 of LEVI capability funding that has already been approved.

"This will help to significantly scale up delivery of chargepoints and help residents without off-street parking to switch to electric vehicles. Moreover, the LEVI Capability Fund provides local authorities with funding for dedicated in-house expertise to deliver chargepoints.

"With nearly 57,000 public charging devices available in the UK, an increase of 47% since this time last year, initiatives like this will help achieve the goal to reach 300,000 chargepoints across the country by 2030.""
