Electric Car Charging Points

Here on the Aske Estate, we have recently installed an electric car charging point next to The Smithy. The charging point is available 24/7 for anyone working in or visiting the Aske offices.

It is a type 2 charging point, which is standard in the UK, so all UK electric cars should be able to use it. As the electricity supply to the estate is single phase, it is not a fast charger, but would, for instance, charge a Nissan Leaf from empty to 100% in about 3-4 hours.

At present, we are pleased to offer the car charging point free of charge, with the cost being borne by the Estate. So, if you are thinking of changing your car to an electric / hybrid vehicle, do bear in mind that the charging point is available for those working at or visiting the offices on the Aske Estate.

A similar charging unit is soon to be fitted at Olliver. As the electricity supply there is 3 phase it will be much faster, and so will take less time to charge the cars than that of the charging point at Aske.
