The City of Espoo increases the number of public charging points for electric vehicles in partnership with Helen – charging points utilising wind power are becoming more common throughout Finland
A total of 18 charging points are being installed in five residential areas in Espoo: in Tapiola, Leppävaara and the Nuottaniemi guest harbour. The charging points utilise wind power, and they are due to be completed during May. The energy company Helen is responsible for their installation.

All Citycon's shopping centres will be equipped with rapid charging points for electric vehicles implemented in cooperation with energy company Helen Ltd. The first rapid charging point will be opened in Shopping Centre Columbus in early February. Rapid charging is suited to all fully electric vehicles, and, as the name suggests, charging a vehicle at one of these points is very fast, taking approximately one hour.
