The Municipality of Lucca has been admitted to the funding of the regional tender relating to electric mobility. Two in particular the projects presented by the Administration included in the 2011 PAC and aimed at improving air quality which are fully financed with regional resources, without the need for municipal co-financing.
The first project consists in the construction of a cycle highway equipped with electrical infrastructures for the recharging of pedal assisted electric bicycles and electric scooters, to be placed along the cycle path connecting the municipalities of Lucca, Capannori, Porcari (cycle project of the Via Francigena). The infrastructural network makes it possible to serve an area on which high flows of connection traffic gravitate to and from the city of Lucca.
The charging points for electric bicycles are located both along the cycle path and in the vicinity of the same at the points of greatest urban development and of greatest attraction for the population: Piazza San Ponziano, Via Dante Alighieri, Via di Piaggia, San Filippo area hospital, Via Paladini (at the Mons.Guidi car park and elementary school).
Each charging point is expected to allow electrical connection for 10 bicycles and 2 electric scooters.
The project saw the construction of two Solar Bike Stations at the Carducci and Palatucci car parks, a structure dedicated to the parking and recharging of light vehicles, with controlled access reserved for users with RFID cards. The station consists of a steel structure and a roof of photovoltaic panels.
The project also includes the supply and installation of a video surveillance system consisting of a digital camera, control software, data processing and backup system, connected to the municipal Web-server.
In-Presa has supplied OEM systems, with its own line of controllers for the preparation of charging and management products, as well as being suitable for the development of the complex integration software system also with the Car Sharing project.
