Electric Vehicle Work Place Charging Scheme

Friday, 23 November 2018

As demand for electric vehicles continues to rise, Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) have installed two additional Electric Vehicle Car Chargers at its Priory House car park, in Shefford.  These two new chargers brings the total to four at Priory House and offer staff and visitors the opportunity to charge their vehicles whilst at work or visiting CBC.  

The Greater South East Energy Hub are raising awareness of national Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS)  funding from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV).
