EV OWNERS INVITED TO DEMONSTRATION EVENT WITH CHARGE FAIRY

Working with Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) and other partners on the Island, specialist mobile rapid charger business, Charge Fairy, is inviting Island EV owners to a special demonstration event.  

If you own an EV with a CCS connector, then you are invited along to meet Charge Fairy on Friday 29th October at Lakeside, Wootton between 12:00-15:00 and get charged up for free.

If you own a Tesla or BMW then you could be charged up overnight for free, on the Friday and Saturday evenings.

The event is funded to promote different EV charging solutions that can help in the transition to EV.

James Hewitt from Charge Fairy explains:

“Charge Fairy has had excellent success in other UK regions, so this is a great opportunity to show residents and business owners on the Isle of Wight, just how we help in delivering EV rapid charge solutions.”

Georgios Simopoulos, SSEN, explains more:

“SSEN is working to anticipate when and where new electricity demand will appear on the Isle of Wight, so they can ensure the network has sufficient capacity. It is also looking at innovative ways of supplying that energy – like mobile charging facilities.“

This is really about SSEN and other electricity suppliers desperate to find ways to handle the growing EV population without investment in infrastructure (a no-no when you’re trying to sell your business like SSEN).
The eonomics of this venture don’t seem to stack up – how many vehicles’ charge can one van hold, and how many EVs can it charge in a night? Given that the answers are probably in the region of 2, £5.99 a week each doesn’t seem to go far.

Rapid charging means that vehicles can reach 80% charge in around 30 minutes

its still ridiculous as smug carts are for ‘a certain type of person’ that have zero interest in how much damage is caused to the planet as they mine for rare earth magnets and other component minerals, virture signalling nonsense. If we all had smug carts the UK would be unable to supply the juice.
