Parish/Town Councils in Leicestershire are being invited to complete an online survey to register their interest in creating an electric car club in their own community.
The survey, the first of its kind in the UK, aims to identify the need for rural electric car clubs that could help communities tackle the decline in public transport and reduce their carbon footprints.
Green Fox Community Energy Co-operative (Green Fox), a Leicester and Leicestershire based community energy organisation have recently been working with Hungarton Parish Council in Leicestershire to explore the potential for an electric car club in their village. During this process a significant number of Parish/Town Councils expressed an interest in developing their own community-run electric car club.
Looking at the bigger picture, Green Fox would like to determine the number of Parish Councils across Leicestershire that might be interested in starting an electric car club for their residents and explore ways in which the clubs could be delivered and supported.
The online survey, which is currently live, should take less than five minute to complete and can be found at: https://forms.gle/DQ8cWki19ifqJy588
To support organisations who wish to take part in the survey, and to find out more, there are two online events planned on:
Monday 24th January 2022 at 7.00pm
Wednesday 2nd February 2022 at 7.00pm
