Electric cars are becoming increasingly popular as more people want to reduce their carbon footprint. Surrey County Council estimate that 10,000 electric vehicle chargepoints will be required by 2030.
Publicly accessible chargepoints are essential to support residents in their transition to electric vehicles and helping the county achieve its goal of being net carbon zero by 2050. However, currently 40% of Surrey households do not have access to off-street parking to install their own chargepoints.
The council want suggestions on where you would like to see new chargepoints in Surrey. This could be somewhere near your house, or somewhere you visit regularly like a shopping area or community space.
