Electric cars to create new peak hour when they all need a charge


Re: I've been pointing this out for years.

I have a hybrid with about 30 miles electric range.

I don't charge it as soon as I get home, I set its timer to be charged for 7:30 in the morning, at other times I charge as and when required, (at work for example).

I also got a free charge point from the electric nation programme, which is studying usage and management of smart chargers to minimise demand peaks.

One problem I can see is our company has about 20 company vehicles, (only 2 hybrids at the moment) but it due to physical and circuit limitations, we could only install a maximum of 4x 7.2KW chargepoints ( we currently have 2 on the building frontage) without a large investment.
