STATUS OF EV CAR IN LIMERICK COUNTY
Limerick City and County Council, in partnership with ESB e-cars, have provided charging facilities for electric vehicles on the public roads throughout Limerick City and County. Only electric vehicles can park in these spaces to allow recharge of batteries. A majority of these are situated in the paid parking zone. However, EVs are allowed four hours of free parking when charging.
On the other hand, Transport Minister Eamon Ryan is being asked to accelerate the introduction of Electric Vehicle (EV) Charge Points in Limerick City to meet increasing demand.
The call was made by Limerick Fine Gael TD Kieran O’Donnell, who claimed that the most recent Government estimates indicate that the number of electric vehicle street charging points that will be available at the end of the year is far behind the goals for increased numbers of electric vehicles.
Nationally, the amount of grants-aided electric vehicles is projected to grow from 6,000 by 2021 to 18,000 in the year ahead. It is estimated that the number of charge stations will rise between 400 and 800.

ACA (TAX INCENTIVE SCHEME FOR BUSINESSES) – Commercial Installing EV Car Chargers in Limerick
The Accelerated Capital Allowance Tax is an incentive program designed to encourage companies to invest in technologies that reduce energy consumption. It’s an incentive program to help tax purposes. ACA is based on the current Capital Allowance for plants and machinery and applies to devices that are energy efficient like the charging system for electric automobiles.
ACA is based upon the “Wear and Tear Allowance” for equipment, as well as capital investment. Capital depreciation is paid back by reducing the tax burden.
The grant allows companies to save money by deducting earnings in the period they bought the equipment. The grant is a tax incentive that the government offers in the applicable year, which is 12.5% of current capital expenses.

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.
