A community share offer will be opening soon for Charge My Street, an enterprise that funds the installation of community-owned electric vehicle (EV) charge points.

In the coming year, Charge My Street will be installing 200 charge points throughout the north of England, working with a range of partners, including CAfS. It’s all part of a programme funded by Innovate UK. The aim is for the charge points to be funded through a public share offer run by Charge My Street.

Communities and individuals who make an investment will therefore own a part of the expanding charge point network that will help to fuel the use of EVs in our region.

The vision of Charge My Street is for all homes without a driveway to be within five minutes’ walk of a charge point, so that no matter where you live, you can help drive forward the EV revolution!

Investors will benefit from full SEIS and EIS tax relief. Charge My Street will release details of the share offer shortly, and it’s likely to run only until the end of March, so you’ll want to get in quick. We’ll keep you posted on our social media and website when it goes live. Watch this space!
