Electric vehicle charging

There are 3 main types of charging options available:

  • 'slow' points give a full charge in 6-12 hours and are often used to charge vehicles overnight at home
  • 'fast' points typically fully charge an electric vehicle in 3-6 hours, located at areas such as car parks or supermarkets
  • 'rapid' points typically provide an 80% charge in 20-40 minutes, and are generally located at motorway services or on main routes

Further information on charging electric vehicles.

Fast and rapid charging points

There is also a growing network of public and workplace fast and rapid
charging points across the country. Visit Zap Map to find your nearest charging points.

Please note: this data is the latest available from Zap Map and not the county council's own data. 

Residential electric vehicle charging points

Any Staffordshire resident wishing to install an electric charging point can currently do so on their own private property (private on-street charging points are currently not available). There is a government scheme available where 75% of costs, to a maximum of £350, is available to assist residents with the initial upfront cost of installing an EV charging point. This would usually be attached to the property and feed onto a private driveway.

Government grants for charging points

We are developing a strategy for the complex issue of electric vehicle charging, including looking at residential charging provision across the county.
