Holiday park adds EV charging points

A holiday park near Dawlish in Devon has installed 16 EV charging points in a bid to offer sustainable travel into the leisure industry.

Cofton Holidays invested £60,000 into the points, which can be used by both guests and visitors to the caravan site.

The company has also installed solar power units and uses an EV for housekeeping purposes in a bid to illustrate the environmental focus of the site and green tourism. It has already spend a quarter of a million pounds in 2020 on such schemes.

The Pod Point chargers, which was recently acquired by EDF, is an “investment for all our futures”, according to director of Cofton Holidays, Chris Jeffrey.

He told local news: “For us, sustainability is the future of tourism. Our goal is to encourage greater use of  electric vehicles both among local residents and visitors. It’s one of  the many ways that we are looking to reduce the carbon footprint here at Cofton.”
