Denbighshire County Council is reducing its use of fossil fuels and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by installing electric vehicle charging points.

The Council will install a total of 14 charging points at its three main office locations in Rhyl, Denbigh and Ruthin as well as its main depots in Rhyl, Ruthin and Bodelwyddan in a bid to reduce carbon emissions.

Works are due to commence towards the end of the financial year.

Each location will have a 7kW fast charge double charging point with two dedicated car charging car spaces.

Cllr Julian Thompson-Hill, lead member for Finance, Performance and Strategic Assets, said:

“This investment is being made to facilitate the electrification of the Council’s fleet vehicles and two electric vehicles are on order which will be able to utilise the charging points.

“This work is part of our commitment to reduce carbon emissions from Council assets by at least 15% by 2022 to help protect the environment, which is a priority under our Corporate Plan.

“In the long-term, the reduction in harmful carbon emissions should improve air quality, reduce pollution and generally improve the wider natural environment for future generations.”
