Greystones, population 20,000, is probably the largest town in Ireland without any public charging points. They were to be installed a few years ago but by the time Bord Pleanala had decided the objection was valid the scheme was finished and it was too late to move to a different site.
A scheme to upgrade the ones in other towns will not cover Greystones, if you don’t have it, you cant get it, A Catch 22 situation! I have written to Minister Bruton and asked for this to be sorted and gather some changes will be made in a couple of months which will help. Currently the Council would have to get approval from Comreg as an approved reseller of electricity if they charge.
I have also written to the Chief Executives of Aldi & Lidl to ask them to install some in their stores in Greystones as I see that Lidl has them in 20 stores in Ireland.
