ubitricity has developed its unique charging points to fit inside ordinary streetlights. By utilising existing street furniture, this means there is no additional street clutter, costs are significantly lower enabling more sockets to be rolled out and there is minimal visual impact on the urban environment.

Ten more charge points will be installed in:

  • Hounslow

  • Richmond

  • Kensington and Chelsea

  • Westminster

  • Barnes
