England to be 1st country to require new homes to include EV chargers

London, Sep 12 (SocialNews.XYZ) The British government will introduce legislation in 2021 that will require all newly built homes and offices to feature electric vehicle chargers in England, the media reported.

Specifically, all new homes and offices will have to feature "smart" charging devices that can automatically charge vehicles during off-peak periods.

 

New office blocks will need to install a charge point for every five parking spaces, Electrek reported.

The new law will make England the first country in the world to require all new homes to have EV chargers, the report said.

It will also boost confidence in helping those who transition from gas cars to overcome range anxiety, as so many homes in England don't have off-street parking or garages.

The proposal is part of the movement to rapidly boost the number of chargers across England ahead of the UK's 2030 ban of new fossil-fuel vehicles, the report said.

The government originally announced a proposal to mandate that all new homes have a charge point with a parking space in 2019, as Electrek then reported.

The home and office EV charger mandate is expected to start in 2022.
