Where Will Electric Vehicles Charge On Your Park?

This summer, record numbers of Electric Vehicle (EV) and Plug-in Hybrid (PHEVs) drivers will be out and about on the nation’s roads.

Demand for EVs is at an all-time high in the UK, with year-on-year sales of EVs/PHEVs having increased by more than 27%, building further on an already bumper year previously.

With leading car manufacturers around the world having introducing new EV and PHEV models, the current monumental increase in EV sales is set to continue at an increasingly rapid rate.

The Government is investing heavily into the industry too – with nearly one billion pounds being directed into promoting the growth and support of EV uptake in this country.

Martin Georgeson, Sales Director of Rolec Services, the award-winning company widely recognised as one of Europe’s leading designers, manufacturers and suppliers of EV charging points and accessories, commented: “As a company, we have been actively involved in the EV industry for over 8 years and are well placed to meet the increasing demand.

“Increasing numbers of caravan parks across the UK are installing Rolec EV charging points as an added feature for their visitors and staff to use to keep pace with the trends of modern day motoring.  We are aware of a number of disgruntled visitors to other leisure parks around the country who have been airing their disappointment at the lack of EV charging points on EV internet forums, highlighting the fact that demand is out there.”

Rolec, the benchmark brand for any caravan park requiring EV chargers, has to date manufactured over 95,000 EV charging points – supplying some of those to companies such as Tesco, Boots, McDonald’s, Hilton Hotels, Heathrow Airport and many more.

Martin continued: “Park managers may think that installing an EV charging pedestal will be complicated and very costly, and will cause lots of disruption to a site, but this is not the case with our products. Our EV charging points are specially designed to be easy and economical to install, safe, and adaptable to a variety of requirements.

“We manufacture ranges with caravan sites in mind – offering both free to charge and pay to charge options, and providing simple solutions for even challenging locations. Our EV charging points are approved by many of the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers, including Nissan, Renault, Vauxhall, BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Mitsubishi, Volvo and Tesla.

“We are also a government approved manufacturer and are proud to be able to offer Europe’s most competitively priced charging points.”
