When you go on holiday in the summer, chances are you look for some fairly familiar things. Sun, sea, sand and a way to switch off, relax and enjoy yourself for one or two blissful weeks of doing as little as possible. The ideal place: Devon Cliffs Holiday Park, one of Haven Holidays’ most idyllic vacation destinations on the beautiful Jurassic coast. These days however, the 21st century holidaymaker expects even more – especially if they are looking to reduce their carbon footprint. And that’s where Solarplicity come in with a part-solar-powered car charging system.

New Car Charging Partnership for Solarplicity

We’re excited to announce an innovative, forward-thinking initiative in association with Bourne Leisure and POD Point: a 10kwp part-solar-powered car charging system with 2 x 7kw charge points situated at Devon Cliffs. With capacity to charge four electric vehicles at any one time, it represents a positive step forward for the ever-increasing sustainability-minded, electric car driving community – as well as a convenient way to ensure that vehicles remain powered up throughout the holiday and for that all-important drive back home!

The installation of this charging station shows that Bourne Leisure have the same kind of progressive way of thinking as Solarplicity, which is something we’re really delighted about. With electric vehicles set to become very much ‘the norm’ in years to come, this could really be the start of something big. Watch this space.
