• All new homes could come with built-in EV chargers

    This is encouraging news for future EV owners.

    All new homes could come with an EV charger built in, under new Government proposals.

    One caveat - it will only apply to homes which has a dedicated parking space.

    I can see how this makes sense for new homes that include a driveway. For on-street parking only, this would mean a residents only parking zone?

    Current News is reporting that buildings undergoing repairs could also get new EV charging points. It is also reporting that the Government wants public charging points to include pay-as-you-go options (so EV drivers wouldn't have to join a charging network).

  • Seems a no brainer to me (in conjustion with the rest of a co-ordinated strategy to push EV)

    Should also be a subsidised options for solar roof tiles and Powerbank style battery energy storage for all new homes.

  • Agreed @Jon1,

    In truth, if the government was genuinely serious about Zero carbon emissions, then they should be forcing new building regs to accommodate efficient heating and insulation processes to be compulsory.
    They should also be increasing incentives to allow for existing properties to be upgraded, and not removing/reducing things like FIT's.
    The secondary benefit to this would be an increase in employment and manufacturing industry.
