This project continues to be an evolving experiment as we learn how to encourage car sharing and reduce the 40% of our carbon footprint which results from our personal travel.
The aims of the project at this point are:-
1. To replace as many fossil fuel car miles as we can with zero carbon miles – i.e. reduce the carbon footprint of our community. (environmental)
2. To encourage local residents and businesses to use the electric van for shared outings, running errands, etc. (community involvement)
3. To give as many local people as possible the chance to experience electric travel with a view to them buying electric vehicles themselves. (educational)
4. To try to encourage other Green Valleys community groups to develop their own schemes so we can build towards a larger pool of cars across the area. (replication)
