Electric Vehicles Rapid Charging

DCE Partners Devon County Council, Teignbridge District Council and South Hams District Council have embarked on a £175,000 project to increase rapid EV charging points across Devon.

Cutting-edge ‘rapid’ Electric Vehicle (EV) charge points have now been commissioned for public use at three council car parks in South Hams and Teignbridge.

EV users can now charge their electric vehicles at the Chudleigh Library car park, Buckfastleigh’s Mardle Way car park and at Ivybridge’s Glanvilles Mill car park.

The ‘rapid’ charge points are among the fastest chargers available – EVs should have an 80 per cent charge within 30 minutes, and will be operated by SWARCO and compatible with all EVs currently on the market.
