Consultation Started on Whether All New Homes Should be Fitted With Electric Car Chargers

Chris Grayling

A consultation process has been launched by the Government today to look at the idea of fitting all new build homes with an electric car charging point. The measure would be on environmental grounds and the UK would be the first country to implement the measure if it’s approved.

Chris Grayling, the Secretary of State for Transport, said:

“With record levels of ultra-low emission vehicles on our roads, it is clear there is an appetite for cleaner, greener transport.

Home charging provides the most convenient and low-cost option for consumers – you can simply plug your car in to charge overnight as you would a mobile phone.”
