NewMotion were tasked with providing charge points and services as part of Southampton’s ‘Clean Air Strategy’.
Southampton City Council have recently completed the installation of 30 electric vehicle (EV) charge points in its city centre car parks. This comes as an initiative in achieving Southampton City Council’s ‘Clean Air Strategy’ mission to improve air quality through the availability of clean and sustainable transport.
NewMotion charge points were specified for five centrally located multi-storey car parks that received high traffic, daily usage, and long parking wait times.
NewMotion’s EV charge points were selected for their dynamic load balancing, meaning Southampton’s charge points can allocate power between cars without overloading the electrical grid.
The charge points selected are made to be smooth and subtle, easily blending into previously petrol dominated parking lots. NewMotion’s charge points are always simple to use and easy to understand.
The charge points installed also came with smart cards which provide all sorts of data and information on charge point usage. Users have now have access to Europe’s largest charge network and detailed insights on charge costs and other important data.
Councillor Christopher Hammond said: “The city council is fully committed to reducing air pollution from exhaust emissions from vehicles in the city.
Facilitating the uptake of electric vehicles is part of our Clean Air Strategy and these 30 chargers are the first of a city-wide network which we’ll deliver.”
