    • It was hoped it would attract £20m of new business to the island
    • In 2015, Economic Development Minister Lyndon Farnham said it would be a "fantastic opportunity" for the island

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Predictions of a spike in the number of electric cars in Guernsey are being welcomed by the island's pollution watchdog.

    Electric car charging

    Guernsey Electricity says it's expecting popularity in electric cars to soar in coming years and has begun planning how it's going to cope with the increasing demand on supplies. 

    Tobin Cook from the Office of Environmental Health and Pollution Regulation says if islanders continue to rely so heavily on cars a shift away from combustion engines would at least help tackle some of the environmental issues.
