HML Electric Vehicle Charging Solution

The discontinuation of petrol and diesel cars has dominated the media throughout 2021. With emissions at record highs, electric vehicles appear to be the solution to reducing the UK’s environmental impact on climate change.

The UK Government announced in 2017 that the production and sale of petrol/diesel cars will be banned from 2030. This announcement has created greater demand for electric vehicles and charging stations across the UK.

To assist homeowners with the shift over to electric vehicles, HML has partnered with ScottishPower and Energy Portfolio in order to help future-proof our client’s homes.
