Brighton's getting supercharged!

Brighton & Hove Council have announced they've been awarded a £300,000 government grant from the Office of Low Emission Vehicles, for the installation of on-street chargers right across the city.

Chair of the Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee, Councillor Gill Mitchell, said: "We are delighted to have been successful in our bid for this funding", adding "this funding will enable us to provide additional electric vehicle charging points in residential areas."

This fantastic news is sure to help supercharge the city's uptake of electric vehicles and we're really excited to see new charge points appearing for the city's residents.
