The Malaga municipalities of Archidona, Campillos and Casabermeja must install charging points for electric vehicles.
Charging stations for electric vehicles must be installed in the province of Malaga. Specifically, they will be in the municipalities of Archidona, Campillos and Casabermeja. Malaga City Council has launched a call for tenders for the execution of these works, allocating a budget of €43,560 (VAT included) for the purchase and installation of these points.
As reported to Europa Press by the Council of Casabermejathese charging points are intended for public use in the non-residential sector, such as public car parks, hotels, shopping centers, universities, hospitals, industrial areas and sports centers.
According to the report, assuming an average charging per vehicle of 200 km at a charging point with an average duration per vehicle estimated at four hours (four vehicles per day), this already represents a CO2 saving.
As the action envisaged consists of the installation of three charging points for two vehicles at each point, it is considered that six vehicles can be charged simultaneously, avoiding the emission of 205.33 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.
Each charging point will have its own geolocation, reservation, activation and collection management platform, and can be integrated with other public and private entity management platforms.
Three charging stations will be installed in each of the municipalities, at locations determined by the municipalities. The municipalities of these three municipalities have decided to take the necessary actions to install these charging stations, the report specifies.
They would have requested the technical and economic collaboration of the City Council of Malaga. The initiative was not compulsory for municipalities with less than 20,000 inhabitants.
