A new initiative is making the charging of electric vehicles at home safer and easier for residents who do not have off-street parking. A pilot scheme has seen a specially designed cable channel installed at 20 locations across Central Bedfordshire, including Fairfield. The channel, called the Gul-e, enables residents to safely connect to their electricity supply from the street outside their house without trailing wires, making owning an electric vehicle a more realistic option for those without a drive or garage.
