Kent REVS up for Cleaner Air
Commercial Services Group are supporting Kent County Council in their desire to achieve a greener transport infrastructure.
A brand new two-year electric van scheme for businesses.
Having successfully secured £1.5M of Highways England funding, the 'Kent Realising Electric Vans Scheme' is one action KCC are taking to help reduce emissions across the Kent road network by encouraging business fleets to switch to electric.
How does the scheme work?
Launching in October 2020 and available to any Kent and Medway business, the scheme will offer businesses the opportunity to 'try for free'* an electric van for up to two months. The scheme will be fully operated by a specialist team in KCS Professional Services and will eventually lead to a range of 50 electric vans for trial throughout the county.
Transforming Kent for the future, together
The aim is that more businesses will be more likely to convert their fleets to electric if they have an opportunity to a trial for an extended period, before committing to a purchase or long-term lease. To further support Kent's ambition for cleaner transport, more electric vehicle charging points are being installed throughout the country too!
If you are an SME interested in looking at ways to become more sustainable and reduce your operating costs then why not also contact LoCASE for other ways that we can assist with support and EU funding.
*Businesses will need to provide vehicle insurance cover for all drivers for the duration of their trial.
