Electric and hybrid vehicles can now be recharged at Poundbury Gardens, following the installation of a new Rolec Sercuricharge charge point. Fitted by Futurum Renewable Energy Systems Ltd, a government approved (OLEV) installer of domestic and commercial charge points, this new universal charge point is the first to be installed in the town and is situated outside The Engine Room Restaurant.
Mike Burks, managing director of The Gardens Group, explains; “We are continually looking at initiatives to make what we do a little greener, as we believe that these measures can have a huge impact on our local community and the wider landscape, so we are thrilled to have the electric vehicle charger point installed here at Poundbury Gardens. As you would expect, we have a lot of environmentally conscious customers, who will be delighted with the new instalment, and we also hope that it inspires others to think about their own impact on the environment and consider the small changes that they could make.”
Tokens for a one-hour charge cost £1 and can be bought at Poundbury Gardens, just off Queen Mother Square in Poundbury.
