Electric Vehicle charging points. National Trust Wales… only one mansion to go and we have a full house?

Its been 18 months in the doing but we are down to our last mansion to receive an Electric Vehicle charging point. All of the mansions / castle sites in Wales are now proud owners of electric vehicle charging points. All of which are free to use. This has been an interesting if challenging project. No two sites have the same wiring, car-park point, accessibility, security and so on. 26 of the systems have been kindly donated by zero carbon world which is a charity dedicated to extending the availability of electric vehicle chargers. In quite a few of the rural locations around Wales The National Trust Wales points are the only ones to be had but I hope it’s the start of something exciting as we try to decarbonise travel. We have also been the recipients of a second charger for Chirk castle from those kid people at Pod chargers. Only one mansion to go at Tredegar House!

but we have plans for many more… watch this space!

    Congratulations on taking the initiative to provide charging facilities in Wales for NT Properties. Hopefully the rest of England will follow suit….
