There’s currently a huge campaign to move drivers away from fossil-fuelled cars. In November 2021, the government announced that there would be compulsory electric car chargers in all new buildings from 2022. New buildings include homes, offices and supermarkets. And some buildings due for major renovation may also be subject to the legislation.
In 2030 the sale of new petrol and diesel cars will stop in the UK. And companies will install 145,000 extra charge points across England every year until then.
Most EV owners charge their cars at home. But using a normal wall plug to charge an electric vehicle is a time-consuming process. And the average cost for installing a specific EV charger at home is around £800.
