Electric boat charging points

Electric charging pointElectric boats are a cleaner and greener way to travel.

The Broads Authority encourages more environmentally-friendly forms of propulsion with reduced charges for electrically powered motor craft and a network of charging points for them.

The electric charging points are operated with cards costing £1 from outlets throughout the Broads.

Over the last month we have carried out essential upgrades to the meters at the points and work is now almost complete.

After installing and programming the last few sites all Broads Authority electric charging points will be open to the public for use by Friday 31 March. We apologise for any inconvenience.

New, contactless cards will be available through all the usual outlets. (Previous cards are all printed with 28 February 2017 as the cut-off date.)

The meters indicate where to hold your card in order to transfer the credit to the meter. The cards are for single use only.

Instructions for using the new meters
