London- and Berlin-based EV charge point operator ubitricity, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Shell Group, has been selected by Bexley Borough Council to supply and maintain a hundred 5 kW public charge points to be installed in existing on-street lamp posts and bollards.
The charge points take as little as two hours each to install. They will be deployed on residential streets across Bexley, with at least two per ward. Ubitricity, which also operates in Germany and France, currently hosts 7,000 public charge points in the UK.
“Installing these chargers using existing lampposts means that there is less physical infrastructure to install, and disruption will be kept to a minimum,” said Councillor Richard Diment, Cabinet Member for Places in Bexley.
