Electric Car Charge Points Need Improved – Boylan

Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan has said the network of electric car charging points needs to be improved. 

The Newry and Armagh MLA said:

“The Chargepoint network needs urgent improvement. Many drivers of electric vehicles have found that many charge points are often out of order across the north. The Electricity Supply Board (ESB) owns the e-car public charge point network and is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the network, however they are looking for match funding to replace the current network and bring it to a better standard.”

“ I have once again written to Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon asking her to look at assisting ESB in their mission to replace and improve the current network.”

“It is vital that our current network is properly maintained, as well as upgraded and expanded, in order to prepare the north to fully embrace sustainable transport.”
