Charging your electric vehicle

On-street charging points for electric vehicles (EVs) in Merton are operated by ESB, Polar and SourceLondon.

Don't trail cables across the pavement when charging your vehicle. It is illegal to cause an obstruction on roads, pavements and footpaths.

How to use the service

The power points are available 24 hours a day, and are compatible with all EVs. They have their own retractable cables so you don't need to bring your own.

There is a free smartphone app that allows you to find nearby power points, reserve them and report faults.

You may be charged a subscription and an hourly rate to use the charging points, with most cars being fully charged in four hours.
