A Cornish electrical franchise brand has been recognised as a Government-approved installer of electric car charging points.
Mr Electric Cornwall and South Devon’s network of franchised electrical businesses are now able to install and manage electrical vehicle car charging points for homes, workplaces and public areas.
Mr Electric can also now help domestic and commercial customers apply for grants towards the cost of installation, which will help reduce the outlays of installing charging points.
Mr Electric director, Stan Barlow, said: “Achieving this accreditation opens up many new opportunities for us as a business, particularly as we are now able to help our customers apply for the available grants.
“But these grants aren’t going to last forever, so it is important that we get this message out to the Cornish and Devon business community now to ensure they benefit from this offer from the Government. We know of many missed opportunities with previous grants when they were available and hope to ensure that our hotel and holiday businesses grab the available financial incentive opportunities.
“We firmly believe there is a future in green technology and electric vehicles will play a huge part – in fact we are about to invest in an electric vehicle for our own team so they can use it for small service jobs and emergency call outs.”
