Connected Kerb has installed 38 EV charging sockets – 19 dual charge points – at locations in Lincoln to cater for residents who live in areas of the city with limited off-street parking.

The chargers will accept contactless card payment, and drivers can also download an app to make payments.

A total of four additional EV charging sockets are also in the process of being made operational at Langworthgate and will be ready for public use in April 2024.

The installation comes as a result of City of Lincoln Council being awarded a grant in February 2023 by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) as part of their On Street Resident Chargepoint Scheme along with match funding from Connected Kerb.

With this expansion, Lincoln now has more than 100 EV chargepoints at public car parks, with at least 50 of these at City of Lincoln car parks.

Residents with EVs are also entitled to a 50% discount on their residents parking permit.

Councillor Bob Bushell, Portfolio Holder for Addressing the Challenge of Climate Change, said, “We are future proofing Lincoln’s electric vehicle infrastructure network to support our residents and visitors with the transition to electric vehicles.

“The more EV chargepoints there are in the city, the more opportunity there is for people to think about making the switch to electric vehicles and in turn, reduce their carbon footprint.”

Chris Pateman-Jones, CEO of Connected Kerb, said, “Making electric vehicle charging easily available to everyone, including residents without a driveway, is vital if the dream of a full switch to EVs is to be realised.

“We’re thrilled to be working with City of Lincoln council to deliver reliable, convenient, and inclusive charging infrastructure for residents and visitors to Lincoln and helping it to meet its climate goals.”
