In an emailed press release on 24 July, it was announced that East Lothian Council has selected SWARCO eVolt to supply 45 electric vehicle (EV) charging units in the county.
11 of the units are rapid chargers, which are capable of charging two vehicles simultaneously in 30 minutes.
A new central charging hub is also being introduced in each of East Lothian’s six largest towns – Musselburgh, Tranent, Haddington, Dunbar, North Berwick and Prestonpans. Each town will feature multiple charging units, including rapid chargers.
Charging units are also being installed at car parks and on-street in several the county’s smaller towns and villages.
Justin Meyer, General Manager at SWARCO eVolt, said: “Scotland is leading the way for EVs and EV infrastructure, so we are pleased to be supporting East Lothian Council and its project to promote the use and uptake of EVs. We are pleased to see our proven and reliable charging units making a real difference to the local residents and visitors.”
