Things Electric seem to be taking off in the Brecon Beacons – the tourist sector embracing the new technology to boost trade and to bring the joys of Electric Transport to holiday makers.
Here in Dorset we also have many visitors seeking to enjoy the countryside and of course those visitors wish to enjoy the rural scene in a way that keeps it the quiet and peaceful place that drew them here in the first place.
In the Brecon Beacons they are setting an example of how this might be done – using quiet electric vehicles so people can explore and enjoy without disturbing, tourism with a light footprint.
Of course what is needed to make this effective are more charging points so those using electric vehicles of any type, can recharge their batteries. Businesses seeking to boost trade might well profit from offering charging facilities, and of course feel good by doing so as well.
In Dorset there is signs of this Electric Transport tourism emerging as well – the electric bicycle hire available near Bridport – and of course the same factors apply, electric bikes need recharging facilities as much as cars – and while the vehicle recharges, well opportunity signals for the alert business people!
Of course as electric vehicle ownership increases, more and more people will need the charging facilities – surely an opportunity not just for the switched on people in the tourist industry?!
