Bradford Council is developing a network of electric vehicle charging points, to encourage the use of electric vehicles in the Bradford District.
The network will enable drivers within the district or visiting the area to recharge in our town centres, helping encourage the uptake of electric vehicles.
Low emissions vehicles, such as electric cars, will assist the Council’s aim to cut air pollution and CO2 emissions from road transport as they emit zero exhaust emissions. They also help cut noise pollution as they are quieter to run.
Electric vehicles are also cheap to run, costing around 4p per mile in electricity.
Funding for the charge points was made available from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) to enable council staff, fleet and visitors to charge up when visiting council sites and are also open to the general public.
Public charge points are located at:
The charge points are providing free charging for an introductory period and can be access by members of the Polar Network.
