SNP Councillor welcomes new Electric Vehicle Charging Units

“It’s good to see more electric vehicle charging points being installed across Renfrewshire,” said Councillor Kenny MacLaren (SNP – Paisley Northwest) commenting on the planned installation of new Electric Vehicle Charging installations.

Renfrewshire Council is installing more electric vehicle charging points to help tackle climate change with new 7kW dual outlet electric vehicle chargers at Falcon Crescent, Ferguslie; Glenburn Community Centre and Kirklandneuk Community Centre, Renfrew.  The work will start on Monday 14th June and is expected to be completed by August 2021.

Councillor Kenny MacLaren added:

“If we are serious about tackling climate change, we need to provide more alternatives to petrol and diesel vehicles.  These new charging points will help those who want to switch over to driving electric vehicles.

“It’s great to see these new electric vehicle charging points in local communities across Renfrewshire rather than just being installed in town centres.

“By spreading new charging points across our communities, Renfrewshire will boost the options of those who are looking at driving electric vehicles.”
