Renewable Energy at Community Level
The aim of the project is to increase awareness of the potential economic benefits of installing electric vehicle charging points in The Vale of Usk by running a 12 month pilot. This will be achieved by installing numerous charging points in suitable locations within The Vale of Usk area.
The locations for charging points have been selected through an “open call” whereby businesses applied to be one of the test locations. A range of business locations across a wide geographical spread have been selected in order to learn as much as possible from the pilot.
Total project cost: £24,000 (RDP amount £19,200)
The project started in Autumn 2017. Twenty charge points have been installed and these are being monitored over a twelve month period with the final results available in early 2019.
