Wern Watkin Bunkhouse, located the Brecon Beacons national park, has today announced the activation of their two Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations donated by Zero Carbon World.

Zero Carbon World donates Charging Stations to the hotel and leisure industry to support the development of a national charging infrastructure and encourage the adoption of electric vehicles.

Visitors to The Bunkhouse with a plug-in vehicle can now recharge overnight or 'top up' their vehicle while staying in the surrounding beauty of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Andrew Fryer from Wern Watkin stated: "We are an Eco tourism destination business working with others on sustainable tourism issues. We already have had both EV and plug in hybrids used by guests and also support the B-bug initiative run by Talybont Energy"

Each Charging Station is simple, robust and reliable and comprises a 13-Amp socket and 32-Amp connector. Zero Carbon World are donating 1000 Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations to businesses around the UK. Successful applicants also join 'Zero:Net' – the only unrestricted National Electric Car charging network in the country.

"There are no restrictions to use Zero:Net,' said Kevin Sharpe Founder of Zero Carbon World and Chair of the Trustees. 'You don't have to be a member, subscribe, pay in advance or use a smart card to access electricity. Wherever EV drivers are, they can recharge while eating, sleeping, working or simply relaxing. We are extremely proud to be creating the UK's only Open Charging Station Network".

Growing rapidly with 124 donations to date, ZCW is on track to install 1000 Charging Stations in the UK.
