What is Plug In Suffolk?
Plug in Suffolk is designed to improve Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in Suffolk’s rural locations and provide an alternative for residents who do not have access to off street parking. The project provides open access, community owned EV charging locations across the county. Installation of the charge point is funded by Plug in Suffolk and it is then handed over to the community group to maintain and operate. The host organisation will receive any revenue after operating costs and is responsible for publicising the charge points. The project has been hugely successful and has been used by government departments as an exemplar for EV charging.
The first phase of the project provided 100 community owned EV charging locations, you can view the locations at the bottom of this page. For phase two, the project will identify and install a further 40 -70 sites in urban and rural areas for community EV as well as extending the innovation to include Solar PV and battery storage to both lower the on-going running costs, reduce carbon emissions and provide possible income streams to the community owners.
