How to charge your electric vehicle for free in Frodsham

DRIVERS of electric cars will be able to charge their vehicles for free in Frodsham on Thursday as part of the Clean Air Day campaign.
Cheshire West and Chester Council is offering free charging for electric vehicles at locations across the borough – including the Moor Lane car park in Frodsham.
Clean Air Day, the UK’s largest campaign on air pollution is on Thursday and free charging will be available from 6pm tomorrow (Wednesday, June 15) until 8am on Friday, June 17.
The Moor Lane car park has two double-socket “fast” chargers, enabling four electric vehicles to charge at once.
Other car parks offering free charging at the same time are:
• Bishop Street car park – Chester
• Brook Street car park – Chester
• Shrewsbury Road car park – Ellesmere Port
• Chester Road car park – Neston
• Park Street car park – Northwich
The council has also installed two rapid 50 kilowatt EVCPs and a fast charger outside the boat museum in Ellesmere Port. Being close to the M53 and Stanlow, The rapid chargers are well suited for quick top-ups by passing trades, taxi drivers and the general public. These will also be free of charge for Clean Air Day.
The council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment, Highways and Strategic Transport, Cllr Karen Shore (pictured)said: “I’m delighted the council is able to support this year’s Clean Air Day by providing free charging facilities for electric vehicles, right across the borough.
“Air pollution is the biggest environmental threat to our health, no matter who you are or where you live. It can harm every organ in your body and can shorten lives, contribute towards chronic illness and put us more at risk of Covid-19.
“On Clean Air Day we can all play our part to cut down on the pollution we cause for a cleaner air future.”
Residents are also encouraged to walk or cycle short distance trips that they may usually take by car, if possible, to help improve the air quality in communities across the borough.
