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 contactless cards costing £1 from outlets throughout the Broads.

The electricity units in each £1 card for the period April 2020 to March 2021 is 5.5. This figure is reviewed each year and reflects the current rate from our electrical supplier.

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 meters
