The northeastern town of Dobrich will be the second one to open an electric vehicle charging station.
The facility will be opened in a month or two, according to Vessela Sharankova, General Manager of the FullCharger company.
Dobrich Mayor Detelina Nikolova explained Friday that the charging point in the city was a private investment but noted that the municipality was interested in contributing to the wider application of eco-friendly energy.
Sharankova specified that there were 7 EV charging stations in the country, all of them located in Sofia.
She explained that cities like Plovdiv, Varna, Burgas and Stara Zagora had expressed interest in opening charging points but Dobrich had eventually emerged the winner.
The General Manager of FullCharger said that 5 electric vehicles had already been registered in Sofia, while the number for the whole of the country was about 1100.
She noted that around 1000 of the electric vehicles had been registered in the Burgas region.
Sharankova stressed that the overall number of EVs included cars, bikes, motor bikes, etc., as well as a number of conventional vehicles converted into electric ones.
She went on to announce that over 3 200 000 vehicles have been registered in the country, over 750 000 of them aged 25+.
The General Manager of FullCharger remarked that conversion was a very good option for old vehicles and added that several companies in Bulgaria were specialized in the sphere.
