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.

The points are all having essential upgrades to their meters. Work started on 28 February and is continuing during March 2017.

Electricity provision at all Broads Authority mooring charging points will be unavailable during this period for several weeks. This period of time will be minimised as much as possible, and we apologise for any inconvenience.

After the upgrades you will need to purchase new-style cards. (Existing cards are all printed with 28 February 2017 as the cut-off date.)

New-style cards will be available from late March from the usual suppliers, once work is fully tested and complete.  

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

Broads Authority moorings, electric pillar meter upgrade, update 17 March 2017

Work has been progressing well with the new meter installation programme. The original plan to open the upgraded electric pillars to the public is still in on track. The full completion date remains 31 March 2017. Please note that the new-style contactless cards will not be available to the public until work is fully completed on all sites, and also fully tested. Please check this page for updates. Full details will be published as soon as cards are available for purchase. Thank you for your patience and we apologise for any inconvenience during these essential works.
