UK: Rapid charging points for electric cars to be installed across Dorset

DORSET is set to make big strides in attracting drivers of electric cars with the announcement that 15 rapid-charging points are to be installed.

Borough of Poole, Bourne-mouth Borough Council and Dorset County Council have jointly secured £723,000 from the Government to provide the fast-charge stations around the area.

The aim is to make long journeys in electric cars viable by removing the ‘range anxiety’ that is associated with most current models, which typically cannot travel more than around 100 miles before they need juice.

Rapid charging points can recharge an electric car in 40 minutes, compared to the four to eight hours needed to top-up using a standard home charger.

The funding will see four new points in Poole, three in Bournemouth and eight around the rest of Dorset.
