Irish town provides electric car chargers

Dun Laoghaire in Ireland is set to be the first town in the country to install recharge points for electric cars
Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council has approved the scheme, meaning that special chargers will be placed in public areas and free parking will be given to electric car drivers.
The Green Party are said to be pleased by the announcement, and are encouraging other towns to follow Dun Laoghaire’s lead.
The scheme has come into effect at the same time that road tax charges are changing in Ireland so that heavier polluting vehicles will have to pay higher rates.
