Launch of local electric car-charging points social enterprise

Ashton Memorial, Williamson Park, Lancaster LA1 1UX

Charge my Street is a new social enterpise bringing community owned Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging points to neighbourhoods in Lancaster and Cumbria in 2018.

Across the world, cities, governments and carmakers are shifting to Electric Vehicles (EVs) in response to rises in air pollution and greenhouse gasses. One of the main barriers to adoption to EVs in the UK is a lack of chargepoints, particularly in areas where people do not have their own driveways.

Charge my Street is a new society which raises the money for local chargepoints, installs and operates them. Charge my Street’s vision is for every home to be within 5 minutes’ walk of an EV Charging point. This will support the adoption of EVs among residents of flats and terraced houses without their own driveways. We will install 4 chargepoints with the share capital raised in this share offer.

The launch event will explain more about our plans and how you can invest in a local charging point.
