The UK will ban the sale of new diesel or petrol cars from 2030, and plug-in hybrids will follow five years later. Sales of new electric vehicles continue to increase, which will accelerate over the next seven years until we reach the 2030 deadline.
Overall, electric cars provide numerous benefits, including environmental benefits, lower operating costs, reduced dependence on foreign oil, a quiet and smooth driving experience, performance benefits, health benefits, and energy security.
However, when you own an electric vehicle, you must ensure your battery has enough power to reach your destination. You can not charge an electric car in the short time it takes to fill a petrol tank, even with superfast chargers, and they may not be available when you need them.

Why Install an EV Home Charger In Keston
There are several benefits to having an EV charger at home instead of relying on public charging points, especially when there are no public points in your village. Benefits include:
Convenience: A home charger allows you to charge your electric vehicle at your convenience without worrying about finding a charging station nearby or waiting in line to use it.
Savings: Home charging is usually less expensive than public charging, and you can take advantage of off-peak electricity rates to save money.
Overnight charging: Home chargers allow you to charge your vehicle overnight fully.
Increased Resale Value: Installing a home charger can increase the resale value of your home, as it is a desirable feature for homebuyers who own or are considering purchasing an electric vehicle.
Environmentally Friendly: Charging your vehicle at home with renewable energy sources such as solar panels can help reduce your carbon footprint and lower your overall environmental impact.
