Local authorities missing out on electric car charge-point funding

Local authorities missing out on electric car charge-point funding
31 January 2018

The DfT has described take-up of the On-Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme as “extremely disappointing”, after it emerged that just five councils in the UK have taken advantage of the electric car scheme.

The DfT went on to say that around a third of homes in England do not have off-street parking, making it extremely difficult to charge an electric vehicle overnight. As a result, it was hoped that on-street charge points like those being offered through the scheme could entice drivers to switch to electric.  For more information please click here.
