Electric Vehicle Charging
The future of driving is here and its electric. The sale of new electric and hybrid vehicles has exploded as the range and technology has improved. New Plug In Hybrid Vehicles (PHEV) and Fully Electric Vehicles are able to handle most daily journeys on a single charge.
As this new technology gathers pace, the infrastructure to enable charging needs to be expanded to meet the requirements.
We have the skills and expertise to work with our clients to assist in the installation of electric vehicle charging points to help a smooth transition from fossil fuels to electric motoring. You can find us on the government list (click here) of approved Electric Vehicle Charge Point installers.
