Care homes embrace electric vehicles
Pinnacle Care Ltd provides specialist dementia residential care and day care across a number of sites in Rugby borough. Pinnacle Care need to transport staff and visitors to and from their semi-rural site at Wolston Grange where there is no local public transport.
They have been using a diesel powered vehicle for these journeys which was due for replacement. The WREV feasibility identified that the business could make a monthly financial saving if they used an electric vehicle compared to their existing vehicle. It was also shown that cost saving would rise to around £100 per month when compared to a new replacement diesel vehicle.
‘We are happy to find a transport solution which provides a practical solution for staff and visitor transport in addition to reducing our monthly costs and carbon dioxide emissions.’ Virginia Bowen – Director, Pinnacle Care Ltd
