Wadebridge is busily installing e-car charging points, as the days when electric vehicles become a normal choice are getting nearer.
WREN members are trialling an electric quad bike, and are very impressed. These machines are particularly interesting to organisations which have renewable generation capacity and want a vehicle which can be used on and off road.
