Connected Kerb, West Sussex County Council, Adur and Worthing District Councils, Arun District Council, Crawley Borough Council, Horsham District Council, and Mid Sussex District Council have formed a partnership to provide a new chargepoint network across West Sussex 

Together the partners will be working together to install thousands of chargepoints across the county within the next ten years, forming the new West Sussex Chargepoint Network. This ambitious scheme will give West Sussex residents the confidence to go electric in time for the ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles in 2030.  

The partnership wants to deliver chargepoints in locations that work best for residents.  Chargepoints will be located on streets and in council car parks. The partnership will also work with local community not for profit land owners to identify opportunities at community facilities across the county, but we also want to know where you want to see chargepoints.

Have your say!

To help us plan a network that works for you, we want to hear from you. We'd like to know your view of where  chargepoints should be located across West Sussex. 

We cannot guarantee that a chargepoint will be installed in the location you suggest, but it will help us map demand and plan the future for EV charging in West Sussex.

Who are Connected Kerb?

Its unique solution combines power and data at the kerb to deliver user-friendly and reliable charging and provide the foundation for connected cities and communities. 

How do I request a chargepoint at a required location?

Residents can let the us know where they would like chargepoints to be located by using an online form. 

We cannot guarantee that a chargepoint will be installed in the location you suggest, but it will help us map demand and plan the future for EV charging in West Sussex. 

What speed are the chargers?

The charging speed is 7kW to 22kW or 50kW. In some locations, this might be limited due to output capacity.

How long will it take to charge my car?

Please note: the time it takes to charge depends on the car battery size which can vary greatly. 
Our 7kW chargers can take on average 9-10 hours to fully charge, while our 22kW will take around 4-5 hours. 

What cables do I need?

For fast chargepoints (7-22kW), you need your own cable with a Type 2 connector.  No cable is required for the rapid chargers which are fitted with tethered cables.

How do I find a chargepoint once they are installed?

You can download the Connected Kerb app via the Appstore or Google Play to locate chargepoints near you and start charging. 

You can also find Connected Kerb chargepoints points on Zap-Map by using the network filter. 

How does the connected Kerb App work?

Using the Connected Kerb App, you can either: 

- Locate and tap the QR code icon that’s in the middle & at the bottom of the app. 

- Locate the QR code icon on the Connected Kerb label that’s on the charging point. 

- Position the icon within your camera frame and the charging session will start when the LED turns blue. 

- To stop charging, tap “stop charging” in the app and the LED will turn green. 

Or 

- Enter the 4-digit ID number located on the Connected Kerb label in the search bar at the top of the app, the LED will turn blue.  

- To stop charging, tap “stop charging” in the app and the LED will turn green 

 

How much does it cost to use the chargepoints?

We charge no membership or connection fees.  

The price per kWh ranges between £0.29 for a regular charge and £0.40 for rapid charging (50KwH) 

How is this calculated?  
Simple: the combination of power and our fee to cover operation and maintenance is the tariff that you will pay per kWh.   

What do I do if I encounter a problem with the charging point / session?

Please call our customer support at 0800 0291 696, we will be happy to assist. Most problems encountered can be fixed remotely 

There are hundreds of houses in my road without access to offstreet parking. Will there be enough chargepoints for us all?

West Sussex is planning to roll out a network in sufficient numbers which will allow residents to transition to electric vehicles. The objective is to have one charger within 500m of their homes. 

There are severe parking issues within my neighbourhood, so placing these units adjacent to the road is only going to increase the fighting for a parking space, or are there plans in place to create ‘charging car parks’?

It is the intention of West Sussex to facilitate the transition to EVs, there will be an increased number of electric vehicles which will replace IC cars and therefore it is important to install charge points for residents without off street parking. Some additional bays will also be created in car parks.

Non-working chargers are already a severe issue for the extremely small numbers of EV drivers at the moment in West Sussex. Are there plans for these to be repaired?

Most of these chargers in West Sussex are now obsolete and will be replaced. 

Is there going to be any maintenance contract in place for all these new chargers? And if yes, how long will the chargers be maintained for, and does it stipulate any time limit for one to be repaired?

Yes, all chargers will be maintained throughout the duration of the partnership.

Will the chargepoints in West Sussex be accessible for disabled drivers?

West Sussex will work closely with Connected Kerb to offer accessible charge points and bays, either on a shared use or disabled bays only.
