Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) manage a number of electric vehicle (EV) charging points as part of the public owned Be.EV. Find out more about the Be.EV network.
The EV Charging Infrastructure Strategy sets out our role in providing more EV charge points and was approved in December 2022. We are not currently looking to install on-street charge points as these can cause obstructions to pavements and street clutter. We do not have a statutory duty to provide public EV charge points but we are looking at opportunities within council owned car parks to expand the public network for residents and businesses.
We do not support the use of cables crossing the pavement to charge vehicles at the roadside, even if cable mats or gullies are used, as these can still cause trip hazards.
If you live in a flat or rented accommodation there may be grants available towards the cost of installation of home chargers.
For eligible businesses, charities and public sector organisations the Workplace Charging Scheme is a voucher-based scheme that provides support towards the up-front costs for EV charge points.
