Had a visit from Matt Trevaskis and his stunning new electric vehicle yesterday. He was giving it a quick test drive on Sennen Cove hill!

ecodrive is partnering with Cornwall Council to become one of the UK's first 'Plugged In Places', through the UK Department for Transport's Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) funding, aiming to provide a network of around 400 charging stations across Cornwall for, initially, a public sector fleet and subsequently private users and tourists.

The charging points will support businesses and individuals considering purchasing, leasing or renting electric cars, motoscooters and light commercial vehicles.

They will be positioned for easy recharging in car parks for commuters, at retail centres and tourist attractions and will eventually include rapid charging facilities for 'pit stop' charging.

As well as encouraging drivers to switch to the lower carbon Electric Vehicles, the charging stations will also support community car clubs which are proven to reduce the number of vehicles on the road AND the number of miles that people drive.

Our dream is an electric bus which runs shuttles around all of the campsites down to the cove...complete with board racks and windbreak carriers!
