EV is here ... it's WATT we do.
With the recent announcement of the government’s plans to bring forward the proposed ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles in the UK by at least 5 years, there has never been a better time to consider electric vehicle charging.
The proposed ban will certainly have a knock on effect on lease schemes for businesses too, meaning vehicles leased by business owners as an expense or company cars driven by staff will also have to comply with government policy.
Last year (2019) seen an increase of 144% in Electric Vehicle sales, with figures set to increase year on year to meet the UK’s zero emissions strategy.
The national grid estimate that there will be 36 million Electric Vehicles on the roads by 2040 with the need for no fewer than 29,000 new charging points installed and fully operational by 2030 to meet demand.
The government have made an investment pledge of around £1.5bn for the upgrading of our electricity infrastructure to help users make the shift from petrol and diesel following growing concerns over climate change.
First Choice Utilities partner with the UK’s leading manufacturer of EV charging solutions and can install, monitor and maintain high quality fast chargers, which can be programmed either as a free to use or pay and charge option.
