Milton Keynes City Council in partnership with BP Pulse is installing another 25 Rapid Chargers across the City, as part of its electric vehicle charging transformation project. Rapid chargers allow motorists to get an 80% charge in around 20-30 minutes, depending on your vehicle and battery state, as well as quick top ups for an extra 30 miles to be back on the road again within 10 minutes.
Milton Keynes charging network is one of the biggest rapid and fast charging on-street networks in the UK and we are pleased our partnership with BP Pulse is enabling these numbers to increase even further for the benefit of our motorists and local communities. The City’s legacy fast electric vehicle chargers are also being replaced to ensure that the City has new and future 7 kW charging to support long-stay charging around offices, hotels and attractions. Our charging hubs around central Milton Keynes will now give our motorists more choice on fast or rapid charging to suit their daily lifestyle, as well as providing confidence in reliability, making the switch to an electric vehicle a more convenient and flexible choice.

On Street Residential Charge
Milton Keynes City Council with our partner BP Pulse have also secured funding through the Governments On Street Residential Charging Scheme to add over 100 more fast charge points in residential areas, where there is less off -street parking, and so the opportunity for home charging is limited . These installations will be taking place over the autumn, giving our residents who are thinking of making the switch to electric, greater flexibility and confidence that the local electric charging infrastructure is in place to support them on their journey to electrification.
