Private fast charging points for cars will be rolled out throughout the country in the coming months and years.
The 50 KW rapid charger will offer an alternative to motorway service stations for the owners of electric car owners.
The charging points are being installed by “Easy Go”, an Irish company that is challenging the ESB’s current dominant position in the market.
“Easy Go” is promising that locations in Sligo and Donegal will be included in the 88 rapid charge public point that will be in operation by 2020.
The founder of “Easy Go” is Chris Kelly; he says that the new charge points will be located at a number of hotels and shopping centres.
