Electric vehicle charging points to be installed at Loughborough station

East Midlands Railway (EMR) says it will begin the installation of four electric vehicle (EV) charging points at Loughborough station later this year.

The charging points which have been installed by E.ON, a solutions and energy provider, will enable drivers to easily charge their car between journeys or while waiting to pick someone up.

All of the charging units are available for EV drivers to use on a pay-as-you-go, no subscription basis. There’s no connection charge; drivers pay via the evpay website or app.

Lisa Angus, Transitions and Projects Director at East Midlands Railway, said: “More than ever before, people want the option to make more sustainable choices about how they travel. 

“This investment in charging points will enable our customers to make a positive contribution to reduce emissions and cut their carbon footprint.”

Sean Keily, Head of EV at E.ON, said: “Increasing ownership of EVs means more drivers looking for places to charge their Cars. Businesses and organisations like East Midlands Railway are supporting the nation’s drive to net zero while providing their customers with convenient access to charging points.

“While many drivers benefit from the ease of home charging, they also need options for when they are out and about, and we’re looking forward to providing visitors to Loughborough station with the facility to boost their cars’ charge while on site.”
