Chargers everywhere

Charging up an EV is easier than ever. Whether you’re at home or on the move, there are plenty of options.

Charging on the move

With more than 40,000 public charge point connectors across the UK, you’re never far from your next charge

For most day-to-day journeys you won’t need to charge up on the move. But if you’re travelling longer distances or just need a top-up, you’re never far from a charging point.

You’ll find them on local streets, in car parks and in filling stations. It’s easy to plan longer journeys, with rapid chargers available at all major motorway service stations.

In Greater Manchester alone there are 360 charge points with around 700 connectors. Find all charge points in the UK and get live updates on availability on the interactive map below.

The Be.EV network

Greater Manchester's publicly owned charging points are included in the Be.EV network.

This map shows all the Be.EV charging points in Greater Manchester.

We’ll use the map for long-term planning and to help with our bids to government for charging point funding.

Charging at home

The government will pay 75% of the cost of charge point installation up to £350, and choosing the right energy tariff can save you even more money.
