Scaling On-Street Charging Infrastructure (SOSCI) started in 2018 & completed in January 2021. The project carried out feasibility work on meeting a vision for 8 million homes without off-street parking to be within 5 minutes walk of an electric vehicle (EV) charge point. The project installed over 200 community charge points across the North of England. This has delivered:
- an increased take-up of electric vehicles, allowing people to save money on fuel costs;
- reduced air pollution and CO2 emissions.
The SOSCI consortium consisted of Durham County Council, South Lakeland District Council, Carlisle City Council, Cumbria Action for Sustainability, Charge My Street, Cybermoor Services, Blackhall Mill Community Association, MER, EO Charging, Miralis Data and Bay Camera & Communications.
