How would you like to power your car off sunshine and rain? Five vans at the National Trust do just this every week.
And everyone else could do it too, absolutely free – that is if a. you have got an electric car and b. you are travelling in Wales.
More than 50 electric points have been installed at National Trust properties, many of which are powered by renewables such as solar panels, hydro schemes and biomass boilers.
The electric points, which were installed free of charge by Zero Carbon World, are peppered from Llandudno to beyond Dinefwr. This means that if a driver so desired, they could follow a stunning route through Wales, from nearly top to bottom, without running out of battery power.
Zero Carbon World, who work with our energy partner Good Energy, have a vision to develop a national, open network of charging locations powered by 100% renewable electricity.

Still not sold, take a look at this great blogpost by an ‘eco funky traveller’ in Wales.
