The first-of-a-kind Connected Kerb project will deliver an EV charging revolution to out-of-town communities and help tackle EV inequality
Transportandenergy.com reports the project will increase the accessibility of EV charging across Kent Parish sites and provides a blueprint for the UK’s local authorities to bring the EV revolution to hard-to-reach areas, with 40 EV chargers to be installed in poorly-served areas across Kent.
Connected Kerb’s technology and business model will reduce the cost for local authorities and landlords, making EV charging realistic for hard-to-reach communities.
In the project’s first phase, Connected Kerb will install 40 charging units across the 20 sites to improve accessibility for EV motorists and encourage a wider shift to EVs. All income from the chargers will go to the local community or is used to support the roll out and maintenance of more chargers, creating a long-term revenue stream for those involved.
