The Development Trust together with Community Energy Scotland and two other Development Trusts, Hoy and Rousay are to be piloting a 2 year project to investigate the uses of Electric Vehicles on Islands.
This project is financed by Community Energy Scotland and carries no cost to the Trust other than the cost of charging the vehicle. All of the costs in obtaining the vehicle , insurance and logos have been met by Community Energy Scotland and we will be conducting analysis of mileage, cost of charging and reliability.
The vehicle will be available to Residents to take for a test drive soon. If you are aged between 20-70 and would like to see what the vehicle is like and have a full driving licence with no penalties and 2 full years of driving experience then please talk to one of the Trust Staff who will let you know what is involved. The vehicle will also be available at island events.
