Tbilisi residents owning electromobiles may soon enjoy free chargers in the vicinity of their homes.

This is the initiative Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze has declared. 

He says Tbilisi City Hall is ready to instal chargers near the homes of electric car owners if they show interest in the initiative. 

Installation will be free of charge.

“Chargers.tbilisi.gov.ge will be launched on 11 February where electric car owners are free to register and provide us with information on their place of residence”, Kaladze declared at a government meeting today .
