First step in expansion of electric vehicle charge point network now complete.

New provider Wenea announces that their 9 new chargers available in the region will be free to use until 9 November 2022

The first stage of work to take over the council’s electric vehicle charge point network is now complete.


The council announced in July that it would be expanding the existing network, in partnership with Wenea. Over the next two years, the number of charge point bays will increase with more provision planned as demand increases. There will be a switch to more rapid charging and support for residents who have to park on the street.

Cllr John Harrington, Cabinet member for infrastructure and transport, said: “It is excellent to see progress being made on the expansion of electric vehicle charge points in the county. This increase in charge point provision will support residents, visitors and businesses in making the switch to electric vehicles.

“The council has made a commitment to reaching carbon net zero by 2030 and strengthening our EV network is a vital part of that effort.”

James Cornaro, Project Manager at Wenea, added: “At Wenea we are very proud to have arrived in Herefordshire. In doing so, we are continuing our mission to roll out the country's largest fast and ultra-fast charging network. We would therefore like to announce that the company's 9 new chargers available in the region will be free to use until 9th November 2022.

“To use the chargers, users simply download the Wenea app, available for iOS and Android, and enjoy the charging experience free of charge. This app can continue to be used whenever they need to charge at a Wenea charging station after 9 November.”

All the charge points are part of the national network. Search online for maps and apps with live availability of all electric charging points and any tariffs that apply across Herefordshire and the rest of the UK.
