There are now two charging points for electric vehicles (EVs) in the Station Car Park. It’s free to charge your car although you still need to pay for parking. These were installed by Wiltshire Council using Government money from the Local Sustainable Transport Fund.
These are fast charging points using Type 2 connectors. It typically takes up to 4 hours to completely recharge a battery from empty using these, although a shorter top-up may be all that’s needed.
The charging point locations have been uploaded to the OpenCharge map which most EV drivers use to plan their routes. This means they’re more likely to choose Bradford on Avon as a stop-off point during their journey.
