A leading supplier of 100 per cent renewable-generated electricity has teamed up with Source East, the East of England's electric vehicle recharging network, to help raise funds for more electric car charging points across the region.
Source East and Green Energy UK aim to make 800 charging points available to the public, with at least one in place within 25 miles of all homes and businesses in the Eastern counties.
So far, Source East has 195 active charging bays in the area, with a further 88 under construction. With the help of this new partnership, it is hoped that drivers in the region will find it even easier to plug into the electric car revolution.
Green Energy UK, based in Hertfordshire, sources its energy only from renewable sources including solar, wind, hydro and biomass.
Source East is the brand name of the East of England Electric Vehicle charging network operated by EValu8 Transport Innovations Ltd. Users of the network will use Source East membership cards to access to the growing network of charging points in the region.
Doug Stewart, CEO of Green Energy UK, said: “The East of England is a leader in the UK’s development and growth of electric vehicles. Therefore, it is important that we embrace this and become greener by putting in place the infrastructure to support it.
“Partnering with such a forward thinking and likeminded organisation such as Source East is really important to us. We endorse any brand, that like us, makes great strides to be green and more energy efficient. With the spiralling cost of petrol and the harmful pollution cars make we feel very passionately that the future of transportation is with electric vehicles.”
As part of the partnership, the energy company will be offering members of the Source East charging network discounted home electricity that comes from green sources, to charge their electric vehicles overnight when at home.
