On-street Residents Electric Car Charge Points
Charge point locations, charges and requesting a new charge point
Off-street charge point locations
To date we have installed 36 charge points and the locations are available on the map below.
We also have charge points in some of our car parks and plan to increase this provision in the future.
How does it work?
The charge point bollards are positioned at the front of the footway and draw electricity from a nearby lamppost, where you'll be able to connect your charging cable. Our charge points can be used with a standard charging cable.
Every charge point has easy-to-follow instructions for charging your vehicle.
Our residential charging bollards can charge your vehicle at up to 5.2kW and are designed for overnight charging. The exact charging time will depend on the size of the vehicle battery and how much charge is left. To get an idea of charging time, divide the battery size or available capacity by the charge point rating. For example, an empty 40kWh battery at one of our charge points will take approximately eight hours to charge.

Proposed on-street electric charge points
In partnership with Ubitricity, we plan to supply, install and manage up to 250 additional on-street charge points in West Berkshire over the next four years to help residents of West Berkshire make the switch to using electric vehicles. We are currently looking for new locations and aim to have a large coverage of the district.
If you would like to request a site, please get in touch and let us know so we can assess the location for a possible charging bollard to be installed.
