ABOUT KERRY COUNTY
Kerry, Irish Ciarrai, is a county within the state of Munster in southwestern Ireland. County Kerry is renowned all over the world for its stunning landscape, which includes Ireland’s highest mountains, Carrantuohill (1,040 meters, 4,414 feet) the Lakes of Killarney, and its stunning white sandy beachfront, rugged cliffs, and rocky headlands.
It is not a journey in Kerry that cannot be complete without a visit to the breathtaking Ring of Kerry drive on the Iveragh Peninsula. It extends South West from Killarney for 65 km (40 millimeters) and passes across the villages of Kenmare, Sneem, Waterville, Cahersiveen, Glenbeigh, and Killorglin.
STATUS OF EV CAR IN KERRY COUNTY
There are only 28 electric vehicle charging points located on publicly held land in Kerry. Out of the 28 electric vehicle charging points- 10 stations are in Tralee, 4 stations are in Killarney and Listowel, and 2 stations are in Castleisland, Killorglin, Dingle, Caherciveen, and Sneem. These are on land owned by local authorities and Irish Rail stations. There are also others on private land including garages and hotels.
Killarney Councilor Brendan Cronin (Ind) claims that number of charging stations in Kerry should be doubled since it is a popular tourist attraction. The lack of charging points conflicts with the demand for people to use electric vehicles.

ACA (TAX INCENTIVE SCHEME FOR BUSINESSES) – Commercial Installing EV Car Chargers in Kerry
The Accelerated Capital Allowance Tax is an incentive plan which encourages companies to invest in the latest technologies that cut down on their energy consumption and address tax issues. ACA is an amendment to the Capital Allowance for machines and plants. It applies to equipment that requires less power, such as electric vehicle chargers. You could qualify for up to €600 to buy and set up the charging system for your electric automobile.
ACA was based on the “Wear and Tear” allowance to finance purchases of machinery and capital investment. Capital depreciation can be repaid via tax reductions.

There are many factors that’ll have an impact on your power consumption and time to charge.
How long it takes to charge your electric car really depends on the type of charging station and your car model. Driving style, traffic speed and road conditions all have an impact on power consumption.
The average electricity fee at night is about €0,095 per kWh in Ireland at night (consumer rate). Let’s say your electric car has an empty battery and approximately 40 kWh capacity. Depending on your driving style, your car should be able to reach approximately 280 to 320 km on a single charge. Charging your electric car would cost a total of 40 x 0.095 = €3.80. This means that the power consumption per 100 kilometres is just around €1,24-1,28.
Yes and no. Just like regular electricity outlets, charging stations may have different outlets and connectors depending on the country where you’re charging and your car brand’s origin. Luckily, to make things less complicated, car manufacturers and most countries have now reduced the options to just 2 types of outlets and connectors. From the car’s side, a Type 1 socket is common for Japanese and American vehicles, and a Type 2 socket is common for European vehicles. Note: all Tesla models have a specific type of socket in the US, whereas in Europe, all Tesla models are equipped with a Type 2 socket. From the charging station’s side, all chargers in both Europe and the US are equipped with a Type 2 socket. A charging station with a fixed cable is an exception; in this case, you would always have to check if the attached cable fits into your car’s socket.
Very little. Despite being an advanced technology, electric cars are remarkably simple to maintain. The same is true for EV charging stations. If installed properly and built modularly, every piece can be easily replaced. Charging stations with online connectivity also enable remote diagnostics and repair, so you won’t be left stranded in the rare event of charger malfunction
Yes, of course. Electric vehicles can definitely be charged in the rain as proper covering shields and protective layers are applied to the charging plugs and charging stations. That prevents any kind of sparks, current loss, water mixing or short circuit.
