Four more Powys towns and villages are to get fast electric vehicle charging points next year.

Llanfair Caereinion, Llanwrtyd Wells, Llanfyllin and Carno could see electric vehicle charging points installed within the first three months of 2024.

It comes after Powys County Council secured additional Welsh Government funding for the new EV charges which will bring the number of Powys County Council sites, where residents and visitors can charge their vehicles, up to 17.

Cllr Jackie Charlton, Cabinet Member for a Greener Powys said: “It’s great that we are going to be making further additions to our electric vehicle charging network in the New Year, which will make this method of transport even more practical for our residents and visitors."

New locations

The new chargers will be installed at:

•         Watergate Street car park, Llanfair Caereinion

•         Zion Street car park, Llanwrtyd Wells

•         Carno car park (next to Spar), old village hall site

•         Llanfyllin car park

She added: “More people using electric vehicles will help to reduce air pollution, as they have zero-tailpipe emissions, and will help to cut our carbon footprint in the long-term as less CO2 will be produced.”

Many Powys County Council owned car parks now have two charge points, with each of these having two charging sockets, allowing four vehicles to be charged simultaneously.
