Charging an electric car at home is easier than you may think and many people have moved over to electric vehicles in recent years. With renewable energy, solar panels and eco homes on the rise, it's no surprise people are switching to low emission electric cars too.

In recent months, the government has made a series of announcements designed to accelerate the development of electric cars. In the net zero strategy, it was confirmed that sales of new petrol and diesel cars will end by 2030, with £620m funding allocated for zero emission vehicle grants.
