The UK charging provider Connected Kerb has been tasked with the installation of charging infrastructure to support over 130 charging points, with 20 to be deployed immediately. The installations are part of an agreement to install chargers at a new 3,000-home development near Swindon.
The 250-hectare site will be developed over the next 20 years to include the afore-mentioned 3,000 homes, as well as schools and other community fixtures. The first homes are nearing completion and the first residents are expected to move in this summer. Providing curb-side charging options should enable many residents to switch to an electric vehicle since space for charging facilities is a real issue in the UK.
“I’m proud to see Wichelstowe leading the way again with an electric vehicle charging network that is available to visitors as well as residents and whether you live in a four-bedroom home with a driveway or a stylish waterside apartment,” said Council leader David Renard, before adding: “Having such an extensive network of charge points will help give people the confidence to make the switch to electric.”
