Transport for London (TFL) and a large number of London boroughs have confirmed a deal with charging specialist Bluepoint which will see 400 extra EV charging points set up across the capital by the end of the current year. On top of installing extra points, Source London, who are Bluepoint’s electric charging network operator have also been given the task of maintaining charging units across large areas of the city. Source London has all ready been backed with £30 million from Bluepoint to develop EV charging across London and will now start offering the new units with a £4 monthly membership fee and pay as you go rates of 3.6p per minute. The current older points will remain free of charge.

London major Sadiq Khan has expressed his desire to make our capital a zero-emissions city and with the help of Bluepoint and the raise in EV sales, this seems to be nearer closer.
