Become a chargepoint champion!

Do you want to help improve the environment, reduce CO2 emissions and help switch more people to quieter electric transport?

If the answer is yes, then you would make great Chargepoint Champion!

Charge my Street is supporting local people like you to get electric vehicle charging points into towns and villages like yours across the North of England.

We are looking for people who can:

  • spot parking spaces where we could put potential local chargepoints
  • talk to local people – asking local businesses, churches, community centres, halls, pubs etc. if they would like a free chargepoint
  • explain the benefits and drawbacks of electric cars to neighbours, friends, colleagues
  • put leaflets through doors and posters up around your neighbourhood
  • help decide where their community chargepoint will be located

Charge my Street will train and support you to help make a real difference to the future of your community!
Suggest some sites and e-mail for more details.

Would you like to host a chargepoint - or suggest somewhere that could?

We're installing around 200 new chargepoints in the north of England by March 2021, and we're looking for host sites now. It's all part of a government-funded programme to install more chargepoints in areas where people don't tend to have their own driveway, and in rural areas that commercial chargepoint providers might not reach. It's a great way to attract more people to your premises, while helping your community. You'll also be at the heart of the drive towards electric vehicles, reducing pollution in your area and helping to tackle climate change.

Can you answer the following:

  • Is there off-street parking for at least two electric vehicles?
  • Are these publicly available, at least overnight?
  • Are you, or the site owner, interested in hosting a chargepoint?
  • Is there a broadband connection or good mobile data signal?
  • Is it in an area that could see it used well, if not now but in the near future?

If you have answered yes to all these, then head over and have a look at our more detailed FAQs page. If you still have questions don't hesitate to get in touch.

Once you've done that, click on your area map below, enter the details requested and submit your suggestion (please check with the site owner before submitting). We will review your suggestion and a project officer will get back to you - if your suggestion is in County Durham it will be a member of the team there, if elsewhere it will be someone from Charge My Street.
