UK: Electric cars in Cumbria get a £500,000 boost

ELECTRIC car supporters are charged up after the county won half a million pounds to plug a ‘black hole’ in Cumbria.

The money will be used to install new public charging points although none are planned to go in at the Lake District honeypots.

Cumbria will receive nine ‘rapid chargers’, which can power up an electric car within 30 minutes, and 14 fast-chargers that do so in four hours.

Kendal will get its own rapid charger – and two more are planned by SLDC for the Westmorland Shopping Centre multi-storey car park.

Carlisle will get two rapid chargers and others will go in at Penrith, Barrow, Whitehaven and Workington.

Fast chargers will also be installed at each end of the A66 linking Cockermouth to Keswick, and locally one in Kendal and one in Barrow.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg announced that £9million was awarded nationwide.
