ChargePoint Services continues its commitment to bring secure and reliable EV charging infrastructure across the East of England following the closure of the Source East network at the end of March.
As part of this commitment:
- Source East card holders will continue to be able to access EV charging infrastructure operated by CPS in the region;
- CPS will offer to upgrade legacy hardware at no additional cost and transition to Pay as You Go (PAYG) thereby eliminating future data and maintenance costs; and
- CPS will continue to work with councils, local authorities and private sector hosts to build and operate Rapid (50kW) and Fast (7 – 22kW) chargers across the region.
At the end of March 2017, the Source East Network will close and the operation of the network will cease to operate on an integrated basis. The Source East free-to-use Electric Vehicle charging network was originally set up in the East of England in 2011 as part of the Government’s Plugged-in-Places scheme. The network was set up and managed by Evalu8 Transport Innovations Limited which worked with a number of Local Authorities and private organisations to locate EV chargers. The free-to-use” Source East network has run much longer than the funded “Plugged-in-Place” programme.
