Electric Vehicle Charging Milton Keynes
Over the last decade, there has been a dramatic increase in the demand for electric vehicles (EVs). There are many reasons for this; such as, the constant development of improved technologies in EVs, the increased awareness of the impact that we are having on the environment, and the upcoming government ban on the sale of new diesel and petrol vehicles from 2030.
In 2010, there were just 138 electric vehicles registered in the UK! By February 2021, the number of EVs registered in the UK had risen exponentially to 215,000 pure-electric cars and over 455,000 plug-in vehicles (including hybrids). As the demand for EVs has increased, the technology that powers them has improved year after year.
As mentioned, by 2030, the sale of any new petrol or diesel vehicles will be banned. Therefore, it is more important than ever for drivers to consider making sure that their next car is an electric one. EVs can be charged up from a charging point. These charging points can be found at many locations, including supermarket car parks, petrol stations and service stations, where you can recharge your vehicle for a fee. However, charge points can also be installed on any domestic or commercial property, making it easier - and cheaper - for you to recharge your EV while at home or at work!
There are many advantages that come with owning your own EV and charge point...
A Smaller Carbon Footprint
By driving an electric vehicle, you are using a cleaner fuel than petrol or diesel. As such, you can drastically reduce your carbon emissions by over 50%. At RDC Electrical Ltd, we believe that it is all of our responsibility to better look after our environment and by driving an EV and using a charge point, we can all reduce our carbon footprint.
Reduce Your Fuel Bills!
Electric vehicles are much cheaper to refuel than their petrol or diesel counterparts. It can even be up to 80% cheaper, depending on your energy provider! As such, you can recoup the cost of a charge point installation through your fuel savings. This is especially true when you have any renewable energy sources (such as solar panels) installed on your property. This can save you up to 99% on your fuel bills!
Compatibility With Renewable Energy Sources
Any EV charge point that you have installed can be connected to your renewable energy sources to further reduce your energy spending. In some cases, it is actually possible to fully recharge your electric vehicle through your renewable energy sources.
Constantly Developing Technology
As the demand for electric vehicles grows, the technology that powers them is constantly being improved upon. A modern EV is just as fuel efficient as diesel and petrol cars, and as more and more people turn to electric vehicles, it won’t be long until EVs are far superior to their petrol and diesel cousins.
