Through the Andalusian Energy Agency (Junta de Andalucia), the Junta de Andalucia has subsidized in Almeria for the purchase of half a million electric vehicles and the installation charging points between 2019-2022 under the Moves plans. The electric car is still more expensive than the gasoline engine at an average of 40,000 euros. This is about 13,000 more than for a gas car.
The budget for Andalusia under the Moves III Plan is 67.5 million Euros from the Next Generation Recovery Fund, which is part of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan. The application period is open until December 31, 2023, or until exhaustion of funds. Individuals, freelancers as well as administrations and businesses can all benefit. If a pure electric, extended range or plug-in hybrid car has a range greater than 90 km is purchased and a vehicle older than seven years is scrapped, the incentives can reach up to 7,000 Euro. They highlight that the Board will give an additional 4,500 euros to those who do not meet the scrapping requirements. Individuals and freelancers can also install charging points with 70% assistance, which increases to 80% if the location is in a municipality of less than 5,000 residents.
Jaen's situation is far worse than other countries or even other provinces. Electricomaps has gathered about 238 connections points at 112 locations. You can consult all of them on their website. Capital, which has more than 20 options, is the municipality in Almeria with the most options. According to the company, there are only two gas stations that offer this service. However, it is expected that they will increase in number.
In the capital, there are several charging points. There are also two connection points at the Port of Almeria. They are located in hypermarkets and supermarkets like the Carrefour Shopping Center, Mediterraneo Shopping Center, or the Torrecardenas Shopping Center.
It should also be noted that the cleaning firm, which provides services to the City Council has access to the 'electrolinera,' which can be used to provide its own fleets of electric vehicles for service in the capital. There are more than 50 vehicles.
