Fairfield is one of 20 locations in Central Bedfordshire that is trialling a new Electric Vehicle charging scheme.
On Fairfield many garages are divorced from houses while some only have parking spaces and no garage. This makes charging difficult as if it could mean cables straddling pavements and thus becoming a safety hazard to pedestrians.
The trial involves inserting a channel under the pavement – called a Gul-e, -thus allowing the cabling to be carried safely across it.
The trial will run for six months during which time comments will be monitored from both the householders concerned and passing pedestrians.
