THERE has been significant investment in electric charging points around the Island, according to Jersey Electricity.
The company’s director of commercial services, Peter Cadiou, said there was ‘increasing demand’ for electric vehicles, ‘from both an environmental and cost perspective’.
Mr Cadiou said they expected that to grow, ‘hopefully in line with Government of Jersey’s Carbon Neutral Roadmap aspirations’.
He added: ‘We will continue to invest in the Evolve charging network to support the transition to clean low-carbon electric transport as demand grows.
‘Jersey Electricity has invested considerably in the Island’s electric-vehicle charging network and the infrastructure is ahead of current demand. Public charge points are strategically placed around the Island in convenient locations near local amenities and most Islanders are never more than 1.5 miles away from a charger.’
