Helping local businesses transition to electric transport
Warrington based Aberla Energy Management, part of the Aberla Group, concluded a number of electric vehicle charge point installations, as part of a pilot project to help local businesses transition to electric transport.
During the scheme, Aberla installed Rolec SecuriCharge ev charging units at office parks around Birchwood, Warrington. The ev chargers were free-to-use, allowing employees and visitors alike to access top-up charging during the day, with an option to future retrofitting to allow pay-to-charge systems.
The project was completed using grant funding from the Office for Low Emissions Vehicles, Workplace Charging Scheme, through which Aberla Energy Management is an approved installer. This funding significantly reduced capital costs for clients.
Paul McCarren, managing director, said of the project ‘Aberla considers the transition to electric vehicles a key part of a low-carbon future. Helping businesses future-proof and providing essential energy infrastructure is an important part of ensuring this future comes to fruition’.
The Workplace Charging Scheme is a Government run grant fund that provides help to cut the cost of installing electric vehicle chargers at workplaces. The fund provides up to £500 off the procurement and installation costs of installing a charge point, and can only be accessed through approved installers.
