We all know that the EV charging network across the country needs to expand rapidly to support the switch from petrol and diesel vehicles to electric vehicles. In Devon and across the UK, Wenea is working hard to deploy EV chargers, with 62 currently live across Exeter, East Devon, and Plymouth, we have ambitious plans for even more to come across the region – read on for what’s coming next.

In our next wave, working with Devon County Council and the Deletti project, we are deploying over 70 rapid EV chargers in public car parks across the region. Covering the whole county, a mix of our 30kW rapid and 100kW ultra-rapid chargers will start appearing in some easy-to-access public car parks in December, providing 75 miles of range in just 30 and 60 minutes respectively.

Our new chargers will be found in car parks in Torbay (including Brixham, Torquay, Paignton, Teignmouth, Shaldon, Kingsteignton and Newton Abbot); Mid Devon (including Tiverton, Cullompton and Crediton); the South Hams (Kingsbridge and Salcombe); Dartmoor towns (Ashburton, Buckfastleigh, Moretonhampstead, Chudleigh and Bovey Tracey) and some smaller villages including Kenton, Starcross and Broadclyst. EV drivers using these sites can park while charging and explore the local shops and cafes in the towns within the short time it takes to charge. The chargers can be operated via contactless card payment or by downloading the Wenea app. Parking fees are set by the local council.

Whether you are local or a visitor to Devon, the number of rapid EV chargers across the region is on the rise with more plans for future deployments yet to come. Wenea plans to deploy a network of at least 350 rapid and ultra-rapid chargers across Devon and Plymouth, finishing in 2025. For full details of all our current chargers take a look at our live map Locations – Rapid Charging Devon.
