Nissan claims that the UK will have more EV charging points than filling stations by 2020

Nissan, which is not disinterested in these things, claims that the UK will have more EV charging points than filling stations by 2020.  

Read about this here.

The report in The Times, claims that we are now at the point of no return for take up of electric cars. As the manufacturer of The Leaf, they would say that wouldn’t they, but we suspect that it’ll be charging at home and at work that accounts for most of those chargers. Public charging points may give drivers reassurance for long distance journeys but if they charge (£££) as much per charge (kWh) as Ecotricity are proposing then we think demand may not be that great.

Of course, the canny business installs solar on its roof and encourages its employees to charge for free at work during daylight hours. We’re doing this in rural Gloucestershire; get in touch to find out how your business can do the same.
