i54: Pop up pavement chargers

5 supporter
To keep pavements clear for access (especially important for encouraging walking, disabled access, prams etc) pop up chargers such as these https://www.trojanenergyltd.com/media-room/first-of-a-kind-trojan-energy-chargepoints-go-live-in-bre... could be installed.


Rationale

Given that pavement access is already a problem in my area, something like this that sits flush with the ground when not in use could provide a charge solution for those without private parking without the pavement access issues


Response to suggestions

I am not an expert on this (so would appreciate any input if anyone knows more!) but understand they are slower and designed for overnight charging. I think the ones installed in Oxford were 7kW. Whilst the slower speed is a drawback, given that more of these could potentially be installed along the kerbside it may be that the availability/access issue is reduced so that longer charge times overnight are not as problematic

What is their speed of charging?

Good idea. Do these pop up chargers have the same charging speed as other charges? The fast chargers, which can charge a car in less than an hour, are very large. So I wonder if these are too small to be fast charging, and might be very slow charging.
