Not too many of us have electric or hybrid cars at the moment, but things are changing, and with more than half an eye to the future the Tenerife Cabildo’s subsidiary Instituto Tecnológico y de Energías Renovables (Technological and Renewable Energy Institute) has provided nineteen recharging points for electric vehicles in the ITER centre on the Granadilla coast. And what is more, the recharging is completely free, with anyone able to drive up and recharge their cars at absolutely no cost.
The Cabildo says that the nineteen points have a total recharge power of 166 kW, with three of the points being rapid recharge. The new facilities are part of the Cabildo’s collection of plans to promote the new generation of vehicles and incentivize the switch from petroleum-fuelled cars; the measures which will be unrolled over the next couple of years will include 415 recharging points in all.
