Electric Vehicles

With the declaration of a ‘Climate Emergency’ by Welsh Government, Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council (RCTCBC) is clear that it must play its’ part in taking urgent action to mitigate the risks of Climate Change. 

The Council has recognised the fundamental changes that are needed to the way we all live our lives, and, as such, has committed to becoming a Net Zero Local Authority by the target date of 2030. The future development of an Electric Vehicle charging network across Rhondda Cynon Taf to facilitate the growth in electric vehicles is just one of the many changes the Council has committed to.

The Council has an important role to play in supporting growth in electric vehicles, including the creation of a supportive policy environment, by abetting the installation of new charging facilities for electric vehicles, and promoting their benefits to a wider audience.

The Electric Vehicle Charging Strategy sets out our thinking on how we will help deliver electric vehicle charging infrastructure across the County Borough over the next 10 years.

Cardiff Capital Region - Public Charging Provision

Working in partnership with the Cardiff Capital Region Transport Authority, the Council is pleased to confirm that Connected Kerb Ltd will begin to install public use Electric Vehicle charging points at 31 car park sites across Rhondda Cynon Taf as part of wider work across the Cardiff Capital Region area of 10 local authorities.

Work will begin across Rhondda Cynon Taf in the coming weeks. There will be a mix of 7kW and 22kW fast charging points. All new EV charging points across the 31 sites will be installed during the course of this year.
