Carmarthenshire Council Announces Plans to Reduce Vehicle Fleet Carbon Emissions

Carmarthenshire County Council has been awarded £431,632 of funding from the Welsh Government, enabling the County to procure 40 brand new electric vehicles to support its front-line services.

In total, 30 electric vans and 10 electric cars have been purchased to replace diesel vehicles and will be deployed on  Carmarthenshire roads in the very near future.

Cabinet Member for Climate Change, Decarbonisation and Sustainability, Cllr. Aled Vaughan Owen said: “This a step in the right direction for the County Council in reducing the emissions of its fleet of service vehicles and I look forward to seeing our new electric vehicles deployed across the county, to serve our communities and residents.”
