Following the brilliant Fully Charged Live last year, we’re proud to say we are again attending all 3 days at Silverstone race circuit on the 7th/8th & 9th June 2019.

I am being interviewed on the Saturday by Jonny Smith of Fully Charged, and giving the ‘inside’ info’ on dealing in EV’s (12.30pm-1.00 pm in the Giga Theater)

Bigger, better, and with Test drives , its going to be fantastic.
Im driving down to Leicestershire (staying at the Hotel of Mum and Dad !) on the Monday and setting up our stand at Fully Charged live on the Thursday.

Friday Morning the event opens and if last years is anything to go on, this will see another huge influx of folk eager to see all the new green tech’ not just every EV you can buy today in the UK, but all things renewable too, from smart chargers to grid balancing

Our stand in Hall 2 will have our Twizy on display which will have been driven south from Aberdeen docks , by non other than the (Bonkers) James Coates (Of James and Kate on You Tube)

Please come over and say ‘Hi’ and we will be ready to answer any question you may have !

Orkney Stig !

March 14, 2016 - Activities

Great Blog from Orkney’s very funny Blogger Sarah Norquoy

Conversations about cars with my husband, (for today let’s call him Orkney Stig) are usually short lived affairs. When we looked at cars to buy a few years ago we narrowed it down to three to choose from.

So when I was asked to guest blog about cars, Orkney Stig thought it was absolutely hilarious.
We have been the owners of an electric car now for about 18 months; I had Continue reading Orkney Stig !.
