EV charge points going in thick and fast by National Trust in Wales. Coastal chargers

Porthdinllaen, Porthoer, Plas yn Rhiw and Llanbedrog charge points

Long time no blog! Its been a few weeks but things don’t stand still in the world of ‘green stuff’ this weeks sees the installation of 4 more EV charge points around the NT bits of the Welsh coast we look after. Llanbedrog, Porthoer, Plas yn Rhiw and Porthdinllaen join Aberdaron, Stackpole and Cwrt sites. This is a small push as part of the National Trust 50th Neptune coastal anniversary. The intention is to install as many systems around the Welsh coast as we can. Thanks again to Zero Carbon UK for donating the chargers. We are well underway to making this a reality. The following image was sent from National Trust Powis Castle car park showing a jam of EV. The words of Kevin Costner come to mind from the film field of dreams. “Build it and they will come” well we have and they have. We might have to build more! PS we have more coastal charging systems going in!

    It’s very important increase the number of charge stations so people can feel free to go every where by electric cars without the charge-anxiety! Environment protection should be our first purpose and we shoul act in this direction each day!

    Dear NT do you have any provision for charging electric bikes at any of your properties?

      not been asked before? what is needed in terms of voltage management as this is basically what a car charger is. Or are we simply talking of a 13amp plug? help gratefully appreciated
