Electric Car Charging

As you will be aware, the future of electric vehicles is likely and charging points will spring up all over the place.


For blocks of flats, the question will need to be asked as to whether charging points will need to be installed in their car parks and News on the Block have published an interesting small article about this.


Please see below:-


Future Fuel, a leading installer of EV chargepoints in residential blocks, has announced that supported by new a finance partner, it is now rolling out an exciting fully-funded charging solution for apartment buildings.

On 2 February, the Government announced a £20M cash injection to boost the number of on-street chargepoints. But flat owners need to charge their vehicles closer to home and it’s not always easy to persuade landlords to invest in car park EV infrastructure until there is buy-in from a majority of residents.

To break the log-jam and make take-up easy and cost-free for block owners, Future Fuel is now able to offer a great new fully financed and maintained solution thanks to its new funding deal.

Future can pre-cable EV chargers in block parking spaces, so residents can switch to electric hassle-free. Installation and maintenance of dedicated 7.4kw chargepoints with RFID or app based control plus technical support comes via a range of unlimited charging bundles for residents that start at £79 per month – or they can opt for PAYG. The service charge is completely by-passed and there is no charge to the landlord.

With more than two years in the industry, Future also has plenty of evidence to show that future-proofing blocks for EV charging has a positive impact on both desirability and property values.

As a managing agent, we are already being asked to keep in mind that charging points will be required, though we are some way off that right now, it will no doubt happen in the future.


We are hopeful that many companies will step forward to install the charging points free of charge, on the basis that they will achieve a regular income from the block residents.
