Wakefield Council plans to install more electric charging points across the district after recent data showed existing rapid chargers have been used almost 9,000 times in the last year.
The council has already installed 10 rapid chargers in the district so far, with a further six planned this year.
Cllr Jack Hemingway, Wakefield Council’s Cabinet Member for Climate Change, said: “This is fantastic news, demonstrating a growing demand for the infrastructure we have developed and a positive step forward as we work to achieve our pledge to become carbon neutral by 2030.
“A further six rapid charging points are planned for this year to help make it even more convenient, and free, for people to access. We really hope our residents will consider switching to electric vehicles if they are able to.”
