EV chargers

The Trust has installed EV charge-points at two of our hospital sites.

EV chargers

The Trust has installed electric vehicle (EV) charge-points at all three of our hospital sites.

The chargers are now live and available to use for staff and visitors. These were installed by Pure-EV.

Where are the EV chargers located?

EV chargers are currently available at the following locations:

  • Pinderfields Hospital - Six bays fed by three dual-charger 22kW pillars outside the NRU/Trust HQ buildings.
  • Dewsbury and District Hospital - Three bays fed by three single-socket 22kW pillars near to the Ridings Building entrance.
  • Pontefract Hospital – Two bays fed by a single dual-charger 14kW pillar near the side entrance in the disabled car park.

How can I use the chargers?

To utilise the chargers, visitors will need to download the free Fuuse Driver App. Drivers must provide their own charging cables to connect into the charging tower and the socket uses a Type 2 connector.

How much do the chargers cost?

Previously, the unit rate being charged was 35p per kWh. As of March 2024, the charging fee changed to 52p per kWh. However, this will change as energy prices fluctuate and the app will always display the most up-to-date fees, so please refer to the app to understand the charges you will incur.

Who can use the EV charger bays?

The EV charger bays are clearly marked with an EV symbol and there are also signs that explain the parameters of usage. These spaces are retained solely for the use of EVs or plug-in hybrids and no diesel or petrol vehicles should be parked in the designated bays at any time.

Will penalties be issued for improper use?

Given that these are fast chargers, there is a maximum charge period of three hours for visitors, as most standard EV batteries will be topped up within that timeframe. Anyone staying beyond that threshold will be issued with an overstay penalty of £10 per additional hour of overstay, as displayed on the EV charging point signage. This is to prevent bay blocking by fully charged EVs.

Fines can also be issued for bay blocking by petrol or diesel vehicles, and for EV and plug-in hybrid vehicles being unplugged.

Please refer to the Electric Vehicle Charge-Points Conditions of Use document below for further details regarding penalties and appeals.
