Lady Bay-based pub the Poppy & Pint has had an electric vehicle charger point installed.
The Castle Rock pub features a 22kW fast charger, which the pub says “can comfortably charge a vehicle in a few hours, making it the ideal choice for those wishing to stop off for a long lunch”.
A charging point has also been installed in The Embankment pub at Trent Bridge.
Installer Alfa Power’s business development director Zuber Patel feels the new installs will further cement Nottingham’s place as a leading Go Ultra Low city.
“We are delighted to have installed two new chargers in Nottingham and hope the additional infrastructure will help bolster the thriving e-mobility community within the Go Ultra Low city,” Patel said.
“We are also pleased to have partnered with Castle Rock on this venture and we are happy to be working with such a forward-thinking organisation, who are keen to contribute toward both corporate social responsibility while also providing an additional service to the people of Nottingham”.
Vicki Saxby, operations director of Castle Rock, said: “We have been working to reduce our ecological footprint for many years now through our green accreditation with Investors in the Environment.
“The addition of charging facilities to the Embankment and the Poppy & Pint is a commitment to a collective future where electric vehicles are the norm.
“We want our pubs to be the go-to places for car charging, where customers can sit back and relax, grab a bite to eat or gear up with a coffee while they charge up.
“The charging facility at the Embankment on Trent Bridge is the most rapid in Nottingham.
“It’s great to be able to offer a speedy service on such a vital transport route in and out of the city.”
