Electric boat charging points
Electric 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 power outage on each charging point is 32amp and 16amp and the card you purchase can be used for every one of our points. There are a limited number of outlets and no booking system is in place to reserve points.
The electricity units in each £1 card for the period April 2022 to March 2023 is currently 5.5. This figure is reviewed each year (next review approx. May 2022) and reflects the current rate from our electrical supplier.
You will also require a standard caravan hook up plug and cable.
The meters indicate where to hold your card in order to transfer the credit to the meter. The cards are for single use only.
For further details please call the Broads Authority tolls office on 01603 756080 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
