Larkfleet has installed two car ports complete with solar PV at the group’s headquarters in Bourne to complement existing electric vehicle charging points.
The new car ports complement existing electric vehicle charging points which will help Lark Energy to ‘go green’ with the use of electric vehicles in its own fleet. Energy generated by the car ports will be fed into the grid to be used as part of Larkfleet’s on-site energy consumption including delivering power to the EV charging points.
Lark Energy is developing new technologies in sustainable building and renewable energy. The car ports powered by solar PV panels are just one example. As the use of electric cars increases, solar powered car ports with EV charging points could be cropping up in office car parks and public spaces up and down the UK.
Matthew Hicks, Renewables Investment director of The Larkfleet Group of Companies, said: “As a leader in sustainable ideas and energy use Lark Energy is fully committed to using sustainable energy sources throughout its business at every level.
“Solar powered car ports offer an opportunity for renewable energy generation. We are keen to deliver installations for developers and commercial property owners including golf courses, country clubs and hotel car parks throughout East Anglia and the East Midlands.
“And by installing charging points powered by sustainable energy in the network we will be helping to promote the use of electric vehicles and renewables in the region.”
