ELECTRIC car owners will be able to charge their motors in just 30 minutes from next month at service stations in Monaghan and Tipperary.

ESB ecars yesterday announced detailed plans for the rollout of so-called fast-charge points in service stations across the country, where drivers will be able to ‘power up’ their vehicles to 80pc of capacity for just €6.

The company has committed to installing 30 fast-charging points across the State by the end of the year, along with 1,500 public charging points and 2,000 in people’s homes.

The first charging points will be operational from next month in Topaz stations at Coolshannagh in Co Monaghan, off the N2, and at Wallers Lot in Cashel, Co Tipperary.
