Minister Godongwana urged to consider incentives to grow the electric vehicle industry

# Finance minister Enoch Godongwana must consider a policy framework and incentives for the development of a national network of off-grid electric vehicle charging stations powered by renewable energy. This is according to electric vehicle renewable energy charging infrastructure company Zero Carbon Charge. Co-founder and director, Andries Malherbe, says some incentives the minister could consider include rebates for drivers who charge their vehicles with electricity sourced from renewable energy charging facilities. The company is currently building 120 charging facilities that are completely off-grid and powered by solar photovoltaics.
