Road - App for Sparks

Where's the juice?
If you are tempted to buy an electric vehicle be it a car, van or scooter, but are worried about running out of spark, there’s a handy free App available to download on Apple and Android stuff. This will show you where the nearest commercial and private charging points are located. Apparently there is a growing community of ‘plugsurfers’ out there who are willing to share their domestic charging point with fellow elec-trekkies.

And if you want to have a look at how the network is growing, just click on the website below. It will display a map centred on Brussels (that’s in Europeland) but you can scroll across the North Sea to home territory. And if you like what you see you can download the App from this page too. Anyway it’s a worth a look if only for interest’s sake.

Now here’s an idea for Wee Eck to get the public on his side. Install a free charging point at the foot of all his windmills which are invading and straddling the landscape like alien extras from the ‘War of the Worlds’. Or maybe that’s a bad idea. They’re not always running, are they?
