Watch this presentation from Charge My Street to find out more about the practicalities around electric vehicle charging and the process to become a host site.
The committee from The Angler’s Rest, a community pub in the Peak District village of Bamford, are currently working with Charge My Street. The pub is central to the village with a private car park, and the area has terraced houses with no off-street parking meaning that personal private chargepoints would not be possible for some residents. Due to its location in the Peak District, the committee envisage electric vehicle chargepoints will also make the pub attractive to tourists with electric vehicles to stop for a meal and recharge. A Charge My Street representative has visited the site to check viability, map the area and locate the mains, and establish how many spaces could be used for sequential charging. The project is listed as ‘under investigation’ on Charge My Street’s website, and people can show support for the site alongside the pub’s profile (they have 82 supporters so far). Although installation is funded, the Angler’s Rest can support Charge My Street by advertising a share offer meaning supporters get a tax rebate and earn interest on their investment. The committee have been impressed by the support from the community, how easy the process has been with Charge My Street, and the potential to be involved with an exciting green initiative.
