New charging points have been installed at Braunston Marina.
Director Tim Coghlan said: "By chance – just before the outbreak of the current post-Brexit petrol crisis - we went live on September 16 with the installation in our main car park, of three car-charging ROLEC bollards – each with two sockets, thus providing for the simultaneous recharging of six hybrid and electric cars."
The installation has already been well received by moorers and marina customers. For a £5 token bought in the marina shop it gives a three hour charge.
"This has so far proved more than enough time to fully recharge a a hybrid car, thus saving on using petrol - the normal source of recharging," added Tim.
"As the bollards are located outside our large dry dock, we have been able to access the dock’s three-phase supply, thus giving a far superior charge to that available from a domestic supply."
