The Drive EV2 Project has significantly increased public electric vehicle charging provision in Cornwall. Funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Cornwall Council, it has delivered 226 new charging points through 93 fast and 20 charging units. The charge points have been installed in Cornwall Council car parks in 42 locations. The aim is to ensure good charging coverage throughout Cornwall
The UK Government has banned the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2035. The Drive EV2 Projects support this switch to electric vehicles. Transport is our largest single source of carbon emissions. Therefore, this is an important part of our efforts to work together to tackle climate change and improve air quality.
SWARCO has installed and operates and maintains the project funded charge points. For problems using charge points or any faults please call SWARCO's 24hr helpline 020 8515 8444.
Users pay to use the charge points. The cost of charging is set by SWARCO at market rates and covers the operation and maintenance throughout the contract.
Car parking charges may apply when using Electric Vehicle (EV) bays in Cornwall Council's car parks and on street within pay and display bays. Please refer to car park signage for charges.
