Haringey amps up charging point provision for electric vehicles across the borough
Charging electric cars will become easier, after Haringey Council installed 38 new Electric Vehicle Charging Points (EVCPs) in the borough.
The EVCPs provided by Source London are all powered by 100% renewable energy, which helps reduce air pollution, and is the latest step as part of Haringey’s commitment to lowering the borough’s carbon footprint and improving our environment.
The points, available now, will let local residents and businesses easily recharge their electric and plug-in hybrid cars and vans. You can find a full list of the charging points near you here: www.zap-map.com
It marks another step forward in our work to counter the impact of climate change in Haringey and comes after we last week agreed to consult with the public on our new Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP).
Local students and Haringey Council also declared a climate change emergency back in March – a month that also saw the successful installation of our first Schools Streets scheme at Lordship Lane Primary School.
Councillor Kirsten Hearn, Cabinet Member for Environment, said:
“Dangerous toxic air is a real threat to the health of residents in Haringey and across London. To protect our residents we must reduce the use of cars, while making sure people who do need one are using healthier vehicles. The rollout of new charging points will encourage residents to choose a healthier mode of transport - it is everybody’s responsibility to minimise the impact of pollution and climate change. In Haringey we have just declared a climate change emergency, introduced our first school street scheme and agreed to consult with residents on our bold new Air Quality Action Plan. We will continue our work to protect our residents from pollution.”
Until 31 May, Source London is also offering residents with a new Source London full membership the benefits of three free months as well as three free charging hours. This offer will be valid with the code HGY19.
