Rushcliffe Borough Council has recently announced the launch of a new solar-powered charge hub that can charge up to 100 electric vehicles a day. The hub has been installed in the car park of Gamston Community Centre in Nottinghamshire.
The new project is down to the Council’s carbon management plan, and this is the first step in having a network of solar-powered charging stations based around Nottinghamshire, with charging stations being powered by natural sunlight.
These points are designed to charge electric and hybrid vehicles to 80% charge within only 30 minutes.
Environmentally friendly transportation
Rushcliffe council already has a network of sites already installed in Radcliffe on Trent, Cotgrave, Rushcliffe Arena in West Bridgford, and Keyworth. In a recent interview with Abby Brennan, who is the council’s portfolio holder for communities and climate change, stated that “the charging point is an essential part of our work to help reduce the environmental impact of our operations.”
She went on to add, “this will continue to encourage the use of electric or hybrid vehicles, as the infrastructure to support them becomes even more convenient and available to residents.”
With this in mind, will continue to give more confidence in the electric vehicles sector, as drastic changes in the fossil fuel industry will start to come into effect within the next 10 years.
The council’s portfolio holder for environment and safety, Rob Inglis has also stated, “we’re once again thrilled to bring more public electric charging points to Rushcliffe by providing this new solar-powered facility in Gamston and just yards from one of our major road routes.”
“This infrastructure will continue to support residents to make the switch to greener transport and complement our existing sites with more to come later this year.“
