1 - Locations:
'Fast' electric vehicle charging is provided by Pembrokeshire County Council in 8 different Pay and Display car park locations around the county. There are 2 chargeposts in each car park. Each chargepost has 2 charging sockets. 4 electric vehicles can therefore charge simultaneously at each location.
2 - Type of charging:
All Pembrokeshire County Council public electric vehicle charging is provided by Type 2 sockets with the charging cable provided by the user. Type 2 is the European standard IEC 62196 commonly referred to as Menekes.
The 'fast' chargeposts operate dynamic load management and they are capable of charging an electric vehicle within 3 to 4 hours dependent on the type and number of vehicles plugged in.
