The number of charging points increases month by month, with over 18,600 public charging points available across the UK (end of December 2018). Locally, shopping centres and supermarkets, including St Georges Shopping Centre in Preston city centre, Winckley Square in Preston and Booths in both Penwortham and Longton have installed plug-in charging points for their customers.
