The installation of Electrical Vehicle (EV) charging points, in properties owned by the Commissioners of Public Works, is carried out when a request is received from a client Department or agency who occupy a particular building. The OPW will survey the site and assess the necessary civil and electrical works required. A budget estimate of cost is then provided to the client. If they wish to proceed, the OPW will tender the works, place the contract(s) and supervise the installation. The client is responsible for funding the cost of the works and the associated ongoing maintenance and operational costs (electricity charges, administration costs associated with charging users a fee for use, etc.).
