Stadtwerke ebermannstadt continues to expand the public charging infrastructure with the help of federal funding. Since charging stations have not yet been economically viable, the federal government has launched a subsidy program. The ebermannstadt municipal utility took advantage of this opportunity and, together with local authorities and private property owners, applied for funding for eight charging points at the beginning of march. The federal ministry of transport and digital infrastructure has now granted funding for all the charging stations applied for.
Stadtwerke ebermannstadt and its partners are pleased that the expansion of the charging infrastructure is making further progress. At least some of the charging stations are to be installed in the current year, the rest in 2018. "We’re putting green electricity on the streets", according to jurgen fiedler, managing director of stadtwerke ebermannstadt.
Filling up around the clock
"our new 22 kw charging stations are located in public spaces and can be used around the clock, seven days a week." 100 percent of the electricity used by the charging stations is generated from renewable sources.
With the installation of the first charging station in 2010, stadtwerke ebermannstadt is one of the pioneers of electromobility. In addition to setting up a charging infrastructure, the municipal utility of ebermannstadt informs citizens and businesses about environmentally friendly and forward-looking electromobility in lectures, one-on-one consultations and show days. A large proportion of charging takes place at home or at the workplace. Here, too, ebermannstadt’s municipal utilities are on hand to provide advice and support.
