Four more charging points for electric cars are to be installed in Brighton.
This will double the number of recharging points even though there are currently just 13 drivers using the scheme.
The new charging points will be in Madeira Drive, opposite The Terraces, and in Withdean Road, outside Withdean Stadium.
The existing points are in Bartholomews, close to Brighton Town Hall, and Ditchling Road, opposite The Level.
Geoffrey Theobald, the Brighton and Hove City Council cabinet member for environment, said that when take-up improves, drivers may have to pay to recharge their cars.
At the moment, drivers can recharge their cars for free.
The cost of installing the charging points will be funded by the European Union and money contributed by planning applicants.
Hove is excluded from EU funding for this scheme.
