As of today, electrical vehicles can be charged at the Wilhelminakade in Rotterdam. Electricity is an environment friendly form of fuel and is substantially cheaper than gasoline. The NRGSPOT, the charge spot where people can charge the battery of their electrical scooter, car or bicycle, is an initiative of Eneco in cooperation with RCI (Rotterdam Climate Initiative) and TNT.
Starting today, Rotterdam will become a bit cleaner. That is because electricity fuelled transportation is both environment friendly and cheap. Eneco has, with financial support from TNT and RCI, introduced the first NRGSPOT. An NRGSPOT is a public charge spot where electrical vehicles can be charged 24 hours a day. Eneco ensures that the charge point will exclusively supply Ecostroom, Eneco's brand of green electricity. Electrical cars, scooters and bicycles are connected to the charger, while the owner can in the mean time go to work, go shopping or out for diner. People are therefore not solely dependent on their own charge spot at home.
Low costs and environment friendly
Not only scooters and bicycles can be fuelled by electricity, but also various other vehicles such as mobility scooters, segways and passenger cars. This NRGSPOT is the first charge spot of the demonstration project in Rotterdam.
