You can now choose from 112 charging points across Ceredigion to charge your electric vehicle (EV).

Following the successful delivery of two phases of EV infrastructure installations in Ceredigion County Council car parks, the county now has the highest number of EV charging points per 100,000 population for the public to use across the whole of Wales.
According to Welsh Government figures published in July 2023, Ceredigion has 158.5 chargers per 100,000 population when compared against the Welsh average of 60.7.

This demonstrates the commitment and importance that Ceredigion is putting into this agenda and will hopefully make the decision to transition to EV easier, not just for Ceredigion residents, but also those visiting our wonderful county.”
Funding for a third phase of EV charger installations has also been secured and will be delivered during this financial year.
