The installation of these public electric charging stations is part of the measures adopted by the respective municipal companies in accordance with the municipal strategy for sustainability of the municipality of Loulé.
The stations, which are part of the nationwide Mobi.E network, are semi-fast charging with 22kW “Mennekes” type outlets. These two sockets allow two vehicles to be charged simultaneously, from 0 percent to 80 percent of the battery in less than 30 minutes, depending on the characteristics of the vehicle being charged.
To use the equipment an electric mobility card is required, which must be requested on the official Mobi.E website.
Vale do Lobo, Vilamoura and the city of Loulé are also fitted with similar equipment, which makes Loulé one of the main Portuguese municipalities that invests most in encouraging the use of environmentally friendly vehicles and in mobility without an ecological footprint.
The Municipality intends to create a municipal network of further public charging stations that promotes the environment and the quality of life of the population.
