Fifty new charging points for electric vehicles are to be installed in the South East.
Public-private partnership the Energise Network is to create the new facilities with support from several councils and transport organisations in the region.
East Sussex County Council transport lead councillor Carl Maynard said: “We are delighted to be involved in this project and pleased to see so many local authorities across the South East working in partnership to develop the Electric Vehicle Charging Network.
“This project will benefit local residents and businesses who rely on electric vehicles by improving their access to charging points. But the benefits will be felt by all, with an improvement in local air quality.”
Deputy prime minister Nick Clegg earlier this month pledged £500M of government money to boost ultra-low-emission vehicles.
