The charge points will be operational next summer
A grant from the Government On-Street Residential Charging scheme is funding the project – following successful lobbying from Havering Council.
The specific locations are still being finalised but should be operational from early summer next year.
It means that many of the charging points will be in areas where residents don’t have the option to charge their homes.
On-street charge points will be put into lamppost columns.
Leader of Havering Council, Councillor Ray Morgon said: “We know the environmental benefits that electric vehicles can bring for our borough such as helping to improve air quality and reducing carbon emissions.
“This is the latest example of our commitment to reducing carbon in our borough in line with our adopted Climate Change Action Plan and supporting our residents in doing the same.”
