‘Green is great’ is the message at a Boston school – after it became the first place in the town to host a charging point for electric cars.

Boston West Primary School has offered up its Sussex Avenue site for the very first EV charging point in conjunction with Rolec Services – in line with plans to promote green living in the area.

Rolec is now on the hunt for more sites to set up the chargers as part of a Government grant scheme, which have come to prominence after the local Nissan garage began selling its first fully electric car.

Boston West headteacher Mike Schofield, said: “The best part of the process was that with the Rolec EV /government grant scheme, this EV charging point did not cost us a penny. We are delighted with the results and we are now just waiting for our EV-driving visitors to make use of this wonderful facility.”

Roger Budge Electrical was selected to do the work, as the company was already undertaking work on the site. The company will be involved in other installations provided by Rolec through the grant.

Bianca Alsop, of Rolec, said: “Rolec is on a mission to make Lincolnshire EV ready and we are very happy that Boston West Academy had a similar vision to ours.”

Premises with car parks owned by the local authority are eligible for the grant. Call Bianca on 01205 724754 for more information.
