More fast charging electric vehicle points are to switched on in the area, the county council has announced.

The EV chargers will be switched on in Carno car park and Watergate car park in Llanfair Caereinion.

They will be commissioned in the first quarter of 2024, according to Powys County Council which has received additional funding from the Welsh Government to do the work.

It will bring the number of Powys County Council sites, where residents and visitors can charge their vehicles, up to 17.

Most Powys County Council owned car parks now have two charge points, with each of these having two charging sockets, allowing four vehicles to be charged simultaneously.

“It’s great that we are going to be making further additions to our electric vehicle charging network in the New Year, which will make this method of transport even more practical for our residents and visitors,” said Cllr Jackie Charlton, Cabinet Member for a Greener Powys. “I’m also pleased to be able to confirm this expansion during Wales Climate Week.

“More people using electric vehicles will help to reduce air pollution, as they have zero-tailpipe emissions, and will help to cut our carbon footprint in the long-term as less CO2 will be produced.”
