Plug In Suffolk

Find information about electric vehicle (EV) charging, our plans to significantly expand the network, and how you can nominate your street for a chargepoint.

By 2030, 80% of new cars and 70% of new vans sold in Great Britain will be zero emission – rising to 100% in 2035. To make the shift to electric vehicles possible, accessible and reliable public charging is needed at scale.

What is the council doing?

Suffolk County Council has secured £6.7m funding to help develop EV charging across the county, after two successful bids to the government’s Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (LEVI) fund, which supports local authorities to plan and deliver charging infrastructure for residents without off-street parking.

Plug In Suffolk will install more community charging hubs as well as hundreds of on-street public chargepoints, so that people without a driveway or garage can charge electric vehicles reliably, easily, and close to their homes. Our goal is for all Suffolk households to have a safe, reliable public chargepoint within 5 to 10 minutes’ walk of where they live.

To nominate your street for a public on-street EV chargepoint, please complete this short survey. (We cannot guarantee that every suggested street will be suitable for a chargepoint, but we will investigate every suggestion made).
