Past meets Future: Electric Vehicle charging at 18th Century Colton House
Colton House, located in rural Staffordshire, has two Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations, donated by Zero Carbon World. Visitors to Colton House with a plug-in vehicle can now recharge overnight or ‘top up’ their vehicle while enjoying a cup of tea in the 1.5 acres of tranquil gardens around this distinctive 18th Century period house.
Ron Lawrence from Colton House said: It is great to be able to be part of the growing network of pods around the country. We believe this will encourage the take up of electric vehicles. At Colton House we are proud of our green credentials. With a productive vegetable garden, local produce and a Gold Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme as well as a Staffordshire Environmental Quality Mark we believe we are showing what can be done.
Zero Carbon World donates Charging Stations to the hotel and leisure industry to support the development of a national charging infrastructure and encourage the adoption of electric vehicles.
Each Charging Station is simple, robust and reliable and comprises a 13-Amp socket and 32-Amp connector. Zero Carbon World is donating 1000 Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations to businesses around the UK. Successful applicants also join ‘Zero:Net’ – the only unrestricted National Electric Car charging network in the country.
‘There are no restrictions to use Zero:Net,’ said Kevin Sharpe Founder of Zero Carbon World and Chair of the Trustees. ‘You don’t have to be a member, subscribe, pay in advance or use a smart card to access electricity. Wherever EV drivers are, they can recharge while eating, sleeping, working or simply relaxing.
STOP TALKING. START DOING. THERE ARE ZERO EXCUSES.
