Electric car charge points installed at Perth development

URBAN Union has revealed it is installing electric car charging points at its Muirton Living development in Perth.

By delivering two charging points to the project, the housebuilder said it hopes to encourage residents to consider opting for plug-in hybrid vehicles, which combine petrol, diesel or alternative fuelled engines with a battery and electric motor.

Neil McKay, MD at Urban Union explained, “Cutting environmental emissions is something that all businesses and individuals should be moving towards. We wanted to make it easy for residents at Muirton Living to choose the environmentally friendly option, so that if they did decide to opt for a hybrid vehicle, they can easily plug it in to charge at the development.”

Andrew Kilpatrick, director of assets at Caledonia Housing Association added, “Working with Urban Union to deliver the electric charging points provides another great environmental facility for the Muirton community. We are delighted to be launching a Muirton community electric car with Co Wheels later in the year which will be able use the charging points and provide convenient access to affordable transport for our Muirton residents.”
