The pan London membership scheme – Source London

If you drive an electric vehicle you don’t have to register with us directly to use the charging bays. If you’re a member of the Source London scheme and have a valid access tag and cable, you can use their charging points in accordance with the local parking controls.

At the moment they charge a flat fee membership but are expecting to eventually move to Pay-As-You-Go.

You can join with any vehicle that’s licensed with the DVLA as a pure electric or a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle including motorbikes, cars, vans, trucks and scooters.

Become a member

Join the Source London scheme. You’ll need to pay the annual membership fee.

Parking controls and time restrictions

All electric vehicle charging bays will be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If parking charges are in place, controlled parking hours will apply. The maximum stay is currently 4 hours with no return within 2 hours however this could change depending on the location of the bay.

Resident’s parking permit discount

If you’re a resident with an electric vehicle, you need a permit to park in your home zone area. The cost of a permit for a vehicle that has no local emissions is £10. This is heavily subsidised compared to vehicles that emit CO2. Apply or renew resident parking permit.

Benefits of electric vehicles

Electric vehicles help:

  • reduce emissions compared with conventional internal combustion engined vehicles
  • address concerns about energy security and dependency on imported oil
  • combat climate change (if they’re powered by renewably sourced or green tariff electricity) by reducing CO2 emissions
  • reduce engine and transmission noise – in particular when they replace stop-starting diesels and at night when ambient noise levels are lower
