Enabling easy access to the South West's beauty spots

Wimbleball Tramper powered by Solar Energy!

Date Posted: 22 March 2013

Last week at Wimbleball Lake in Somerset, Countryside Mobility Project Manager James Maben attended a launch event to see the unveiling of a Somerset company’s new product!

Solar Systems, a specialist in solar technologies, helped by the Chairman of Exmoor National Park Authority John Dyke, unveiled their new Pluginsolarpanels which aim to provide a solution for homeowners or businesses who want to use solar technology and make savings on their energy bills.

The South West Lakes Trust has installed the product at its Wimbleball Lake site to offset the electricity consumption of its Tramper all-terrain mobility vehicle which is supplied by Countryside Mobility South West and is our first Tramper to be carbon neutral!

Exmoor National Park Authority encourages communities and land managers on the park to consider using renewable energy technologies. This is a great example of how the technology can make a difference without damaging the wildlife and natural beauty in the area and Countryside Mobility are delighted to be a part of it!
