At nine miles by five and with speed restrictions of 40mph, Jersey is the perfect environment for electric vehicles (EVs) and they are the perfect way to help protect that environment.
The number of makes and models of EVs available in Jersey has steadily increased over the years, with both private and business users making the switch in growing numbers.
Jersey Electriity has been at the forefront of promoting and facilitating the use of EVs. Our own EV 'stable' includes the Peugeot iOn, Nissan Leaf, Nissan e-NV200, Renault Kangoo ZE and the Renault ZOE.
We view EVs as the next big step to further reducing Jersey's overall carbon emissions. We have worked with the States to install a public charging network, with charging bays in all of St Helier's five multi-storey car parks and at our own Powerhouse headquarters.
Benefits of EVs:
- Low running costs
- Low environmental impact
- Low maintenance
- No exhaust emissions
- Very quiet
