Since the government announced its plans to end the sale of new petrol and diesel cars by 2030, many of us have been considering the move to electric. Here at Abbey, we’ve been future proofing our new homes by installing electric vehicle (EV) car charging stations across a number of our upcoming developments.
So why now? We work closely with the local planning authorities in the areas where we build to make sure we’re hitting their targets for renewable energy and environmental improvements. We also know that many of our buyers are already making changes to live more sustainably, and we want to encourage and enable them to do so by making electric car use as easy, affordable and convenient as we can.
Stephen Holbrook, Sales Director at Abbey New Homes, comments: “The construction industry has a crucial role to play in addressing issues of sustainability in the coming years. We’re committed to creating a cleaner, greener environment, working with local stakeholders in our communities to deliver electric car charging points across our future developments as well as other initiatives, such as the provision of solar panels already installed at many of our new homes. With energy bills and the cost of living on the up, we’re pleased to deliver lower costs for our buyers in the running of their homes wherever we can.”
EV car charging points have already been introduced at four of Abbey’s developments: Egerton Place and Four Elms Place in Kent, St Nicholas Place in Oxford and Stratford Reach in Milton Keynes.
