Two new electric vehicle charging points are to open in Jyväskylä, increasing the number of charging points in Finland to over 60.

Implemented by electric car charging service provider Power Point, there are presently points at 13 different locations across the country. In Jyväskylä, the points are supported by Jyväskylä Energy Group, the local electricity, water and district heat provider owned by the city.

Complementing the points, a free app for mobile devices and an SMS service informs motorists, in real-time, on the status of the points, allowing online bookings and payment. A helpdesk is also running 24 hours a day providing assistance in Finnish, Swedish and English.

The new improvements to charging infrastructure in Finland are designed to make the electric vehicle experience for users a better one, according to Jussi Palola, CEO of Power Point.

‘The launch [of the new services] will help further electric vehicle driving by substantially improving the services in Finland. We welcome new players to join us,’ he said.
