Cofton Holidays Continues Investing In EVs

The United Kingdom-based Cofton Holidays has invested £200,000 in 11 electric vehicles (EV) for its housekeeping and maintenance teams.

The investment is the latest eco-friendly initiative in a series of programs made by Premier Park, which caters to touring vehicles, tents, lodges, holiday cottages, and apartments, according to a report.

It also follows the installation of electric vehicle charging points last year, a two-acre rewilding project, and the installation of solar panels on the park’s 12 luxury lodges, indoor leisure complex, and toilet blocks.

Earlier this year, Cofton also invested £17,000 in 16 electric bikes for visitors to hire.

“For us, sustainability is the future of tourism. It’s why we’re investing heavily in green initiatives. As one of Devon’s leading holiday parks, we’re encouraging other South West businesses and those who live in and visit our beautiful region, to become more environmentally aware,” said Cofton Holidays Director Chris Jeffery.

“We need to practice what we preach, which is why we’re adopting electric vehicle alternatives. These not only reduce emissions on site and lower our fuel costs, but they are quieter, which means our team can work efficiently whilst keeping noise to a minimum.”

Jeffery said that introducing electric vehicles into their daily operations is part of their drive to become one of the UK’s leading sustainable holiday parks. As part of an industry that accommodates guests from all over and outside south Devon, looking after the environment and encouraging their visitors to do the same is important for them.

“That is why we’ve also introduced e-bike hire, providing a sustainable way for guests to explore the local area. It’s all part of our ongoing commitment to introducing new initiatives that will continue to make a difference in the fight against climate change,” he said.
