On Saturday The George Inn, Wedmore, announced the activation of their Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station by local MP Tessa.
Visitors to The George Inn with an electric vehicle can now recharge for free while staying overnight at the Grade II listed building or top-up while enjoying a meal in their locally-sourced restaurant.
Gordon Stevens from The George Inn, said: ‘We are very pleased to be supporting electric car drivers by installing Zero Carbon World’s Charging Stations. It is a great feeling to know that we are now a part of a national network of locations offering reliable charging to drivers.’
‘We are looking forward to welcoming our first electric car and its driver.’
Tessa said “I was so excited to launch this – the Wedmore Green Group and The George Inn have been working really hard to get the charging point here. What’s brilliant is that there is no charge for this service and while you are waiting you can be sampling the delights of the wonderful pub and I really hope this will encourage more people into the village.’’
Tessa is with Cara Nadan (ZCW), Sharon Fay (FJ Chalke), Jono Taylor (WGG), and Indie Heaslip (The George Inn)
‘There are no restrictions to use ZeroNet, our National Electric Car charging network’ said Cara Nadan of Zero Carbon World. ‘You don’t have to be a member, subscribe, pay in advance or use a smart card to access electricity. Wherever EV drivers are, they can recharge while eating, sleeping, working or simply relaxing. We are extremely proud to be creating the UK’s only Open Charging Station Network.’
