Information for residents and visitors who use electric vehicles.
Electric vehicle chargepoints in car parks
There are currently 12 council car parks offering electric vehicle chargepoints for use by the public.
All of the chargepoints in council car parks provide users with 100% renewable electricity. The 12 sites offer a combined total of 32 'fast' chargepoints, meaning that the chargepoints offer 7-22kW power.
You can only charge a vehicles battery at the maximum charge rate the vehicle can accept. For example, if your vehicles maximum charge rate is 7kW, you won't charge any faster by using a 22kW chargepoint. You can still use the chargepoint, and it will provide your maximum charge rate up to 22kW.

The chargepoints are also listed on Zap Map, the most popular EV chargepoint locator website in the UK.
We aim to continue installing EV chargepoints across the local authority area. This will contribute to the Welsh Government's ambition in transitioning to a low carbon, low emission transport system in Wales, and align with the Welsh Government's Electric Vehicle Charging Strategy, and Llwybr Newydd: a new Wales transport strategy.
A further 44 fast chargepoints have secured funding for delivery by March 2022. This webpage will be updated with the details of where you can find them once they have been installed.
We don't permit private electric vehicle charging cables being used to charge vehicles on the highway (on-street locations). You will need to find your nearest public electric vehicle chargepoint to charge your vehicle. Zap Map is a popular site to use for this.
Funding for the 12 chargepoints was secured through a combination of funding from the Welsh Government's Local Transport Fund and the Office for Low Emission Vehicles On-Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme in 2019-20.
