Workplace Electric Car Charging Points Installation Aberdeen
By 2032 the Scottish government aims to ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans, with some major manufacturers already halting the development of new petrol & diesel models by 2020. The increase in the number of electric vehicles on the road means that there will be a need for more public and workplace charging points. Aberdeen Electricians Ltd is an EVi network approved installer of home EV Chargers and workplace electric car charging points installation in Aberdeen and the surrounding areas.
