New homes and buildings will be required to install electric
New homes and buildings will be required to install electric vehicle charging points from next year, Boris Johnson will confirm today.
In a speech to the Confederation of British Industry annual conference, the Prime Minister is set to announce legislation to drive an electric car revolution.
New build homes, supermarkets and workplaces will have to install charging points as standard by law, while properties undergoing significant improvements will also be forced to make the upgrades.
Boris Johnson is expected to say that they will require new homes and buildings to have EV charging points, with another 145,000 charging points to be installed thanks to these regulations.
He said that they were investing in new projects to turn wind power into hydrogen, and the ten-point plan investments have already triggered about £90 billion of private sector investment.
Downing Street branded the move as world-leading and the goal is that charging an electric vehicle will become as easy as filling up with fuel.
Boris Johnson will say that Labour will establish an Office for Value for Money, and just as they scrutinise the cost of their business, they will do the same on behalf of the taxpaying public.
The problem is that most people don’t want his green nonsense and certainly don’t want to be paying for it, but he just doesn’t get the hint even though it’s slapping him in the face like a wet fish.
The other problem is that our National Grid will have to keep up with all this electricity these charging points will be using, and I can see that it’s going to be a huge problem and people will be waking up in the morning with no electricity, so thanks to these fancy green cars, people will be living in the dark ages for a while, well, until it’s sorted out, and thereS probably won’t be any cheap overnight rates in the future because everyone will want to charge their toy cars and demand will probably increase overnight.
And let’s face it, realistically it’s far from green if you take into account its production.
And what about the majority of homes in the country like terraced houses with no driveways or flats that are twenty storeys high, they represent the vast majority of homes – I’d like to see them get charging points to those homes.
Although some charging points could be installed into the street lights, which would be great, but you’d have to have a lamp every fifty yards, and I can’t see people going out at 2 am to move their car once it’s charged so someone else can move their car to charge it.
So, what it looks like is that only the well-off will be able to use this method of driving green, everyone else will have to use public services or on your bike mate.
To be fair, I’m not sure how this is going to work when developers can’t even provide enough parking for residents, and for flats, all I can envision is fifteen floors with cables dangling from their windows with extension leads!
And how are they going to support the power grid?
Boris Johnson seems to be living in a dream world, but good luck to him when he wakes up in the morning and goes downstairs to put the kettle on – oh, I forgot Dilyn their dog does that because God forbid Boris should lift a finger.
