11 New Electric Car Chargers Coming To Offaly

The Tritium chargers will be installed in the county over the next six months.

A host of new electric vehicle chargers are coming to Offaly.

As part of its partnership with Eir, EasyGo are installing 11 new Tritium Fast chargers around the county over the next six months.

Offaly is one of seven counties to benefit from the move, joining Mayo, Cavan, Waterford, Kilkenny, Tipperary and Monaghan.

The multi-million euro investment equates to the installation of 200 chargers around the country - with the location of 130 of those yet to be determined.

A survey from the Society of the Irish Motor Industry has found around 1 in 7 cars sold this year have been electric.

Chris Kelly, Founder and Technical Director of EasyGo says:
"We are delighted to work with so many local authorities on this programme as well as with our partners in eir and Tritium. Our team is already actively rolling out the plan to install 70 new fast Tritium chargers and we’ll continue to engage with local authorities and look forward to identifying 130 more locations around the country. This rollout is consistent with the national strategy outlined by Department of Transport and ZEVI. These chargers will make the transition to EVs in rural Ireland much easier and will be located in convenient town centre locations across the country."
