Electric cars function by plugging into a charge point and taking electricity from the grid. They store the electricity in rechargeable batteries that power an electric motor, which turns the wheels. Electric cars accelerate faster than vehicles with traditional fuel engines – so they feel lighter to drive.
We understand the need to protect our environment and have acknowledged that more and more of our Tenants and their customers are investing in electric cars. We therefore wanted to add another level of service to the Business Park by offering Electric Car Charging Points.
We have 4 Chargers @ 22kw/ph and 2 Chargers @ 3.6 kw/ph and we charge 0.35p per kw/ph. The capacity of most batteries is 90KW and most batteries power to 80% which is 72KW. So on faster charge this will take up to 3 1/2 hours (72/22). We do ask drivers to pop in their registration numbers so if there are any issues we can pin point which charger they used immediately.
