And i dont mean electric music i mean car! yup I got a shock this morning when i filled up my Car it cost me €112.97c and that wont last me a week! the car i drive is a Nissan Navara, which i need the space for when i’m doing gigs, to put my equipment in the back and have my crew with me! so no argument there!
but if could get something that can get me to the studio everyday for a fraction of the cost i’ll be happy!
I could actually Rent an apartment within 5 mins walking distance to 98FM cheaper than my monthly fuel cost. But thats just silly!
So what about an electric car?
How do you power it?
ESB is responsible for the roll out of charge points nationwide and the implementation of supporting IT systems which will have open accessibility for all energy supply companies and all types of ecars.
In March 2010, ESB installed the first on-street charge points in Dublin and they are now being deployed in other locations across the country. The target for the end of 2011 is:
- 2000 home charge units installed
- 1500 public charge points available across Ireland
- 30 fast charge points installed
With 3 types of charging options and an extensive nationwide charging network, electric car drivers will never be far from a charge point. The introduction of any new technology calls for extensive trials and research. ESB ecars is conducting pilot projects to analyse the infrastructure and collect data on consumer behaviour and trends.
Part of the process in buying an electric car is to register for ecar charging so that drivers have access to public charge points and have a charge point installed in your home.
Where are the charge points?
What cars are available?
Well this is somthing i’m going to research and test out some motors! I ‘m aware of some Renault cars so they will be the 1st port of call!
