PILOT GROUP PARTNERS WITH DENT COUNCIL TO SUPPLY ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGEPOINTS

Manchester-based sustainability expert, Pilot Group, has teamed up with Dent with Cowgill Parish Council to install Electric Vehicle (EV) charge points.  

The organisation, which offers innovative technology solutions to help businesses reach net zero, has worked with the council to supply and install six EV charge points for use at a public car park in Laning, in the village of Dent, Cumbria. 

Pilot Group was awarded a three-year contract, which includes ongoing support and maintenance, following a competitive tender process. 

After conducting a site visit and survey to understand the Council’s requirements, Pilot Group proposed the installation of three double classic units which include post mount, signage, and bollard protection. 

The charge points are accompanied by three photocell-operated bollard lights, also supplied by Pilot Group, to illuminate the surrounding area to improve accessibility and safety. They also feature a contactless payment solution enhancing useability for members of the public.                

Additionally, the chargers display advertising, providing both a revenue opportunity and a chance for business customers to view promotional materials provided by local businesses. 

As part of the deal, the council also has access to back-office software allows it to review the status of the charging points, usage and income statistics. 

Dent with Cowgill Parish Council covers the village of Dent along with the hamlets of Cowgill and Gawthrop in South Lakeland. 

Scott Thornley, Clerk and RFO at Dent with Cowgill Parish Council, said: “We have been hugely impressed by the support we’ve received from the Pilot Group team. From conducting a site survey and consulting us on the most suitable solution, the process has been seamless. 

“The convenience of contactless payment solutions and well-lit charge points mean we are offering a unique service for our community, and one that is crucial as more and more people turn to driving electric vehicles. We’re excited to have brought something new to Laning and will hopefully continue our relationship with Pilot Group into the future.” 

Leon Wong, EV Business Development Manager at Pilot Group, said: “At Pilot Group, we’re working hard to promote and encourage the implementation of electrical charging infrastructure across the country to enable the adaptation to a cleaner, electric vehicle future. 

“It’s brilliant to have been able to support Dent with Cowgill Parish Council to realise their goal of providing EV charging solutions within their community and offering a new option for local residents moving forward. We look forward to seeing our relationship progress over the length of the contract.”
