Mid Sussex Electrical used to only use diesel vans for site visits. They struggled with:
- Time wasted in traffic and while finding parking
- High Central London congestion and emissions charges
Inspired by a weekend in Amsterdam, and with funding from the DfT’s eCargo bike grant fund, Mid Sussex Electrical purchased their own eCargo bike.
Mid Sussex electrical was the UK‘s first electrical contractor to adopt eCargo bikes.
Through the eCargo Bike Accelerator Project, Mid Sussex Electrical is being advertised to other Brighton & Hove businesses.
