Those of you with electric cars can now plug in and get charged up in Tŷ Pawb as their new charging points come into public use.

The two chargers are on the first floor of the car park and are for the sole use of electric cars.

In addition to the normal parking fee the cost of re-charging your vehicle will be a 50p connection fee and 30p per kW hour. There will also be an overstay charge after 4 hours of £10.

“We have a part to play”

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for the Environment and Transport, said: “I’m very pleased we are now rolling out this programme of electric charging points. As a local authority we have a part to play in helping drivers to go green and and switch to electric cars. The move underline’s our commitment to reduce carbon and promote energy efficiency.”

“With the ban of the sale of all diesel and petrol cars from 2040 it’s very likely there will be further demand for charging points and we’ll need to make sure we accommodate this demand in our future developments.”

The completion of these charging points is the first of several to come into use in the county borough before Christmas with drivers soon being able to charge up at Alyn Waters Country Park, Tŷ Mawr Country Park, Waterworld and the Trevor Basin.

We’ll let you know when these are ready to use.

The charging points have been funded by income from our Solar Farm in Legacy. Any income from the charging element will go back into the Carbon Budget for future projects.
