The Energy Saving Trust this week reported that British Gas has launched a scheme to install electric car charging points in homes and businesses, in a new deal with Nissan.
Nissan currently produce the Nissan Leaf.
The utility company is also urging owners of electric vehicles to consider charging them with renewable energy.
Using non-renewably generated power means your ‘green’ car isn’t as green as it could be.
In January, we wrote about the Government’s £5000 grant scheme for electric vehicle purchases (click here).
It makes perfect sense to recharge electric vehicles with renewable energy so expect similar tie-ins and deals between utility / solar panel installation companies and electric vehicle manufacturers in the future.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a little deal sweetener involved when buying an electric vehicle for discounts off of installing solar panels etc?
Whether you’re installing solar panels to generate electricity for your re-chargeable car or your home, getting an idea of cost is a great first step and our Solar Panel Quoter website can give you just that, in minutes, online without the need for a salesman to call on you.
