On Wednesday September 22, there was a press point dedicated to the deployment of the Monaco ON charging station network, set up over the past 18 months in the Principality.
The event, which came as the “end of the European Mobility Week”, took place in the presence of the relevant State Services: Mission for Energy Transition, Department of Urban Planning, Public Parking Service, as well as the operator Société Monégasque de l’Electricité et du Gaz (SMEG).
The Department of Equipment, Environment and Town Planning is adopting an ambitious strategy to support electromobility with Monaco ON, by “upgrading” the proposed infrastructure.
The catches were already numerous; the terminals, in addition to remaining free, are now more efficient, easily identifiable thanks to their yellow color and no subscription.
Government’s stated objective: gradually replace self-service outlets with electric service stations, several terminals to make vehicle charging ever more efficient and accessible to as many people as possible.
Today, 113 Monaco ON terminals are installed in 7 public car parks in the Principality. 3 new car parks will be equipped by the end of the year, ie 80 new terminals. On the road, there are currently 17 terminals that can each accommodate 2 vehicles. 12 new terminals will complete the offer by the end of the year (7 four-wheel and 5 two-wheel terminals).
By the end of 2021, ecological vehicles represent 10% of the Monegasque vehicle fleet. By offering faster and closer recharging, Monaco ON responds to a growing need for charging for individuals and business fleets: the turnover rates on the terminals bear witness to both their efficiency and their success.
By collaborating with SMEG, the State also offers a high quality of service to users, in particular through support and assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
As a reminder, since 1994 the Prince’s Government has been pursuing a particularly incentive policy in favor of electromobility: purchase premium, free charge, reduction on subscription in public car parks, free surface parking and free parking. annual registration stamp, are measures to encourage their use.
