Kimmins Welcomes Electric Vehicle Chargepoint Upgrades

Sinn Féin MLA Liz Kimmins is welcoming ESB replacing a number of EV charge points across the north.

The Newry and Armagh MLA stated:

“ESB ecars is in the process of replacing 35 electric vehicle chargers across the north. These changepoints were in poor condition and in urgent need of an upgrade.

“They are now beginning the next phase to replace a further 15 AC Fast and five Rapid chargers in the coming weeks.

“I’m delighted that this will include replacing chargepoints in areas such as at Monaghan street,  Five Ways on the Armagh Road, and the Quays shopping centre in Newry.

“However the current chargepoint network is in very poor condition and much more needs done to build the network to help encourage people to take up electric vehicles.

“I will continue to press on Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon to support the chargepoint network.

“Its vital that we properly invest in the infrastructure that lets us fully embrace green transport.
