Electric vehicle charging points

Electric vehicle web banner

Public electric vehicle charging points continue to be installed across Basingstoke and Deane for use by residents and visitors to the borough.

Take a look at ZapMap to find a charger near you.

To help encourage people to make the switch to an electric vehicle, the council has had a number of charging points installed in its public car parks across the borough. This includes the creation of Hampshire’s first publicly owned charging hub in Basingstoke.

For information on how to use the charging points, visit the MER website. The MER app users can download the app from the Apple or Android stores.

The council is also taking steps to increase the amount of on-street chargers, working closely with Hampshire County Council as the organisation responsible for this to help shape its plans. Residents can request a charging point near to them by completing the on-street electric vehicle charger survey on Hampshire County Council’s website.
