Installation of electric vehicle charge points throughout Lancashire

Lancaster Park and Ride charging points

As a result of the county councils work with BPChargemaster (now known as bpPULSE) 150 Electric Vehicle charging bays have been installed throughout the council area to help the people of Lancashire make the switch to the new technology. This equipment has been installed either at the side of the adopted highway or in county council carparks.

The county council has installed two different types of charge units. Ultra chargers which will allow most vehicles to take a full charge in less than an hour and Fast Chargers that will take around three hours to charge the vehicles but each unit is able to charge two vehicles at any time. The mix of these units depends on location, power supply and demand.

The installation program has been completed and  a list of sites can be found below. This information and how to use the machines is also available on the bpPULSE website which includes the wider availability of their network for those travelling further afield. A further source of information regarding available charge points can be found using Zap-Map and other mapping web pages.
