Twizy charging stations installed at beach
Electric vehicle charging stations have been installed at Clearwater Beach to encourage visitors to make a trip to the east end location.
Twizy electric car rentals can be charged at the eight stations while visitors enjoy themselves at the beach in Southside, St David’s.
The charging points were installed by Bermuda Land Development Company Limited.
Francis Mussenden, chief executive officer of the BLDC, said: “We wanted to support the people using these vehicles and felt that installing charging ports would bring more visitors to this beautiful and somewhat undiscovered part of the island.
“This is just one part of our commitment to improve the experience at Clearwater Beach for everyone. We have upgraded the parking lot at Turtle Bay and the restroom facilities have been renovated.”
He added: “We also have new vendors offering beach activities, merchandise, refreshing treats, deck chair and umbrella rentals, snorkelling, paddle boarding, and much more.”
The two-seater Renault Twizy minicars have been available to rent from Current Vehicles in Bermuda for about a year. The zero-emission minicars have a range of 55 miles per charge.
Piers Carr, CEO of Current Vehicles, said: “We set out to make Bermuda more accessible than ever by giving our customers the means to safely explore the island at their own convenience.
“Clearwater Beach is a bit of a hidden gem, but a place that we know will create lasting memories for all of those that visit.
“Having charging stations located there will help to encourage more visitors to the site and hopefully show them a part of the Island they would otherwise not see.”
There is no fee for topping up a Twizy at the Clearwater charging stations.
