With the growing popularity of electric vehicles in England adding public charging stations seems like an obvious idea. Electricity producer EDF is partnering with manufacturer Elektromotive to install 250 new charging points over the next six months in London and elsewhere in the country. EVs like the Reva G-Wiz have gained a foothold because they are exempt from the congestion charge that drivers have to pay to go into central London. Two hundred of the 240V charging stations will go into London with most of the rest in Brighton and Sheffield. Charging fees will be determined by local governments with some expected to offer the service for free.
