ELECTRIC CAR CHARGING LINE MARKING
The Midlands has only recently become a Plugged-in-Places region and is not currently as developed as other UK regions. Plugged-in Places is a government scheme used to encourage businesses and the public sector to install electric car charging points in their spaces. The aim is to develop a regional network of more than 500 charging points over the next two years. The first of these charging points, installed in August 2011, is fully compatible with all other car charging points across the UK and sets the precedent for the ones to come.
The cost to charge an electric car in the UK varies between home, work and public charging.
Charging at home costs about £3.00 for a full charge or 2p per mile. Public car charging points at supermarkets or car parks are often free to use for the duration of your stay. Finally rapid car charging points are found at motorway service stations and typically cost £6.50 for a 30 minute charge.
Electric car charging points are recognised by a distinct logo which can vary in style. We can produce the chosen logo in an array of colours to suit you, with the most common colour being blue or green. But there is an element of customisation to this type of line marking. So if you need any advice on this, call us for more details.
The car charging points are clear and are not to be used just as parking spaces. These are specific areas for only electric cars to be so they can be parked up and charged. The customers can then charge their vehicle whilst going about their lives.
The spaces can either be marked by the logo for electric charging or the spaces can have lettering to indicate them.
