Bringing electric cars to Thamesmead
The first of our on-street Electric Car (EV) charging points have been installed in our lamp posts in Thamesmead, as part of a wider contract to install 50 charging points across our estates in London over the next four years.
Working with contractors FM Conway, the five newly installed EV charging points will be available for use by our colleagues and our residents, improving access to charging facilities and therefore making it easier for them to consider switching to electric vehicles in the future. Going forward, we will continue to install chargers across 10 of our estates annually for the next four years.
As part of our Sustainability Strategy, we aim to convert 100% of our own fleet to electric vehicles by 2030.
Richard Ellis, our Director of Sustainability said: “We know that electric vehicles can help with soaring fuel prices that we have seen recently, lowering costs but also dramatically reducing carbon emissions. We want to make it easier for our residents to have access to EV charging points if they choose to have an electric vehicle in the future.
“These new EV charging points will also play an important role in helping us get one step further to having a 100% electric fleet of vehicles as they help our residents in and around London. Knowing that our points are easily available will mean that our vehicles can be charged up easily no matter where our teams are working on our estates.”
Graham Cartledge, Lighting Director at FM Conway said: “FM Conway is proud to be collaborating with Peabody Estates to achieve their ambitious sustainability goals and play our part in delivering a greener London.
“The electric car market is growing quickly and through our SureCharge service we will endeavour to provide London’s residents with a flexible, innovative solution for the future.”
