Electric vehicle (EV) Charging Points – As of yesterday, the 15th of June 2022, all new homes, workplaces and supermarkets must have electric vehicle charging points installed to support the nation’s electrification and Net Zero plans. This legislation will also apply to properties undergoing significant refurbishment plans with over 10 parking bays. As the UK is becoming more conscious about the environment that we live in, more and more drivers are making the switch to electric; a law like this will provide future EV drivers with confidence when it comes to making the electric transition.
The government says this change will lead to the installation of up to 145,000 EV chargers across England each year, building on the “over 250,000” home and workplace chargers it has supported so far
With electric vehicles increasing in popularity and will continue to do so over the coming years, have you considered this for your company car park? An increasing number of companies are installing workplace EV charging units for employees and visitors. Workplace charging makes sense, as an employee’s vehicle will typically be parked for most of the day when it can be conveniently charged. Company owners can decide whether to provide free charging or charge a small fee.
