We’ve been keeping a close eye on EV charging facilities on the Wirral since we placed the order for our car back in July… the Wirral is where we have family and friends having only moved South four years ago, so it will be a regular trip for us.Well done - I guess you've not been to York in it! ;-)
Gridserve are good - and are beginning to revitalise the old EH units.
In the space of six months the Wirral has gone from a paltry few public chargers located at one supermarket and one Holiday Inn and a few others to a much broader range that now includes an Instavolt, Ionity (350Kwh), free (admittedly rather pathetic) public lamppost charger scheme, Lidl rapid 50Kwh chargers and other supermarkets embracing the 7Kwh ones.
So things are definitely moving in the right direction. Gridserve have also put planning permission in for a new EV charging forecourt on the Wirral. GRIDSERVE | Bromborough
Hopefully at some point York will catch up!
My main concern is how much the cost of electric may rise by. Gridserve put their prices up by 30% a few weeks ago and it’s pretty certain that home charging is going to get significantly more expensive this year.
