Be.EV and Stockport Council signed a 15 million pound deal in March “to revolutionise electric transport infrastructure in the borough.” The first four chargers in Romiley include two ultra-rapid chargers, as well as one rapid and one fast charger.

The chargers are open to all EV models. Be.EV will be able to charge at a discounted rate. Part of the revenue generated will go to the Stockport Council, directly benefitting local communities, it says in the Council’s press release. Be.EV has paid for the “installation and operating costs for the Romiley Precinct hub, as well as managed the design, build, installation of the site, and ongoing maintenance.”

“It is fantastic to see the first charging point in operation following the agreement signed in 2023,” says Mark Roberts, Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Environment. “Installing more electric vehicle chargers is a key element for the council with regards to its commitment to taking action on climate change as we aim for Stockport to be carbon neutral by 2038.”

“It is great to see the first hub from our partnership with Stockport Council up and running, and we’re excited to install more state-of-the-art charging infrastructure across the borough,” adds Asif Ghafoor, CEO of Be.EV. “Other councils should sit up and take notice – sites like these are perfect for simultaneously achieving their net-zero transition goals while also providing a boost to local businesses.”
