埃克塞特電動汽車充電點被拆除

管理該項目的德文郡快速充電組織表示,私營公司Gamma能源公司將承擔撤出機器和用不同型號機器替換的所有費用。

在回答英國廣播公司的問題時,德文郡快速充電組織發表了一份聲明,稱一些快速充電器 "沒有像我們希望的那樣持續工作"。

它說,與其繼續 "斷斷續續的服務,我們已經決定用不同型號的充電器替換所有的充電器"。

該聲明接着說。"與任何新技術一樣,可能會有一些磨合問題,更換費用由相關的私營公司承擔。

"雖然這在短期內會造成一些不便,但最終埃克塞特的居民將在家門口獲得可靠的電動車充電,從而幫助我們的城市過渡到一個淨零的未來。"

當時,負責公路管理的內閣成員Stuart Hughes說。"這一舉措非常令人振奮,使埃克塞特在英國最可持續發展的城市中名列前茅。"

關於取消充電點的消息,休斯先生說,他仍然相信埃克塞特在這方面處於領先地位。

交通部發言人拒絕對埃克塞特的情況發表評論,但表示正在為英國各地的充電樁網絡投資16億英鎊。

埃克塞特的八個充電點各由兩台快速充電機組成。目前還不清楚有多少個充電點的安裝已經完成。

"更換這些設備對ZPN來說沒有任何成本,ZPN也不對它們的運行負責"。


Rapid Charging Devon, the organisation which is managing the project, said private company Gamma Energy would be meeting all of the costs of the withdrawal of the machines and their replacement with different models.

In response to questions from the BBC, Rapid Charging Devon issued a statement which said some of the rapid chargers were "not working as consistently as we would like".

It said rather than continuing "with an intermittent service, we have decided to replace all the chargers with a different model".

The statement went on to say: "As with any new technology there can be teething problems and the replacement costs are being met by the private company involved.

"Whilst this will cause some inconvenience in the short term, ultimately Exeter residents will get reliable EV charging on their doorsteps thereby helping our city transition to a net zero future."

At the time Stuart Hughes, cabinet member for highway management, said: "This initiative is hugely exciting and puts Exeter on the map with the UK's most sustainable cities."

Regarding the news of the removal of the charge points, Mr Hughes said he still believed Exeter was leading the way.

A spokesperson for the Department for Transport declined to comment on the situation in Exeter, but said it was investing £1.6bn in charge point networks across the UK.

The eight charging points in Exeter each consisted of two rapid charging machines. It is not clear how many of the charge point installations were completed.

"There is no cost to the replacement of the units to ZPN, nor do ZPN have any responsibility for their operation."
