Lancashire County Council is to install 150 electric vehicle (EV) charging points.

They will include 18 rapid chargers and 66 dual-socket fast chargers, with the first units to be installed in early 2018.

They will be part of Chargemaster’s EV charging network POLAR, which already has more than 5,500 chargers nationwide.

The project follows a successful bid by Lancashire County Council under the Department for Transport’s Highway Maintenance Challenge Fund.

Part of the funding is being used to replace old streetlights with LEDs, which the council says has already resulted in “hundreds of thousands of pounds a year” in energy savings.
