CRANBROOK PARKING GOES ELECTRIC

Cranbrook’s first electric car customer, and a very happy one to, was a tourist from Berkhamsted who plugged into the newly installed electric vehicle charger on Easter Sunday.  These chargers at the Jockey Lane Car Park will charge at 7.5kw per hour.  A first-generation electric car battery holds about 22kw, a new generation car battery holds 42kw and these chargers will also fit rechargeable hybrids. 

With electric cars becoming more popular Cranbrook & Sissinghurst Parish Council is hoping that this facility will encourage more visitors to the town.
