Work has begun on expanding the infrastructure that makes it possible to charge electric cars.

- But we are not really there yet, says the municipality's city planning manager Helén Wiklund Wårell.

The city building administration has received a total of three million kronor to set up charging posts so that the municipality's passenger car fleet of around 340 vehicles is replaced by electric cars.

Retains biogas-powered cars

Today, the municipality also has biogas-powered company cars.

- I can not say that we are phasing out biogas-powered cars completely.

We have an agreement with Lumire, which owns the biogas plant, says Helén Wiklund Wårell.

In the video, Wiklund Wårell tells more about the municipality's change.
