Retrofit all street lamps to be electric car charging points. A no-brainer surely? ...

I was thinking the other day why don't we retrofit street lamps to be electric car charging points? Just add a plug. There are lots of street lamps around (7.5 million in London), street lamps obviously already have electricity to them, it would be relatively cheap to do, and it would save digging up the roads again.

But it turns out they are already doing it in some parts of London! London street lamps are being turned into electric car charging points. So why don't they roll it out to ever street in the UK? It would really kick start electric car ownership.


  1. Lithium battery voltage must be prevented from exceeding this voltage because it not only ruins battery life but also it can lead to battery destruction or overheating and fire in some lithium batteries. isoenergy.co.uk

  2. Many businesses are installing EV charging stations, but you can’t always rely on charging space availability or having the time you may need to recharge.
