Ok, this is probably off topic, but, years ago I was working with a young lady who had a passion for horses. She said that it was written into common law that if an employee wanted to ride a horse to work, the employer was obliged to provide stables, water etc. for the horse. She would often wonder what would happen if she tried to insist on her "right". Ok, this point of law may or may not be true, but why ruin a good story. Fast forward more years than I care to thing about, and her musings have given me an idea. Given that the UK Government provides a grant for employers and local authorities to install chargers, £7.5k per charger(?), what if the government were to mandate that a percentage of all company car parking should be equipped with chargers capable of recharging a car during the normal working day. Now if the employer was regulated that they could levy a charge for the electricity used (at market rate, not CYC or ecotricity extortion rates), would that not speed up the adoption of eco friendly modes of transport. I know some employers have installed chargers, I see them as I go round as part of my work, but if it were to have official government backing, well, who knows where that might end up. Thoughts anyone?
