ESB keeps charging costs for electric vehicles “under constant observation”

ESB e-cars has told Independent Motors it is keeping its electric vehicle charging prices “under constant review” as it faces a huge spike in wholesale energy costs.

This is only to be expected given the rising costs and scarcity of supply. From a response to an inquiry, there was no sign of an impending increase Independent engines. But who knows what’s in store for us – not just for e-cars, but for every company?

ESB e-cars had to increase its public charging fees by up to 47 percent in early May.

One of the best ways to keep costs down is to charge your car at home as much as possible. After all, electricity is cheapest there.

That’s the case for now, but experts believe more people will use a wider range of charging points as the range that newer cars can cover on one charge increases. There will be a more “stratified” range of loading options.

It’s already happening, they say, as people not only charge at home, but also at work, supermarkets and hotels.

The government has also provided funding for local authorities to install electric vehicle chargers. We need to see more.

The charging network has received a lot of criticism, some justified, some not.

The company claims that ESB has modernized and expanded the charging network for electric vehicles since 2019. This included more multi-charge stations, high-capacity chargers, and upgrading AC chargers nationwide.

And yet, reports of lag and slow loading times continue to be reported by disgruntled drivers.

Other work carried out includes the installation of 19 high-power hubs that will allow at least three electric vehicles to be charged simultaneously.

Eight bay high capacity electric vehicle charging stations are currently being built at Mullingar, Oranmore, Co. Galway and Blanchardstown shopping center but they are also considering other locations on motorways and national road networks to build high capacity charging stations.

They’re all badly needed to meet the expected sharp rise in EV ownership — and charging demand — over the next few years, let alone those who think it’s taking too long and too much hassle, now receive a public fee.

But regardless of the discussions about connectivity, one thing is now clear: we need to be able to handle a large increase in capacity.
