Ealing Council is committed to tackling climate change and improving local air quality and is supporting the take up of electric vehicles (EVs). The council has a manifesto commitment to support the delivery of 2000 charging points by 2026.
EVs have lower running costs, are currently exempt from the Congestion Charge and Ultra Low Emission Zone schemes, pay no road tax (Vehicle Exercise Duty) and benefit from parking permit discounts in Ealing and reduced company car tax.
Current live EV chargepoint (EVCP) locations can be found at Zap Map.

On-street EV charge points in your neighbourhood
There is a very high demand for more EVCPs and unfortunately it is not possible to install them in every location due to physical and electrical safety constraints.
Please use the form below to highlight a location where you think an electric vehicle charging point is required.

Installing your own EVCP
Please note that running a cable across the public footway (pavement) from a property is not permitted due to health and safety risks.
The government Office for Low Emission Vehicles, provides grants for residents and businesses to install charge points on their own property (including driveways and garages) and to buy electric cars.
See details on how to install a footway (pavement) crossover and convert the front of your property into a drive to enable home charging.
