Pod Point is offering a free electric vehicle charge points to schools that are surrounded by the worst air pollution.
Up to thirty primary schools in highly polluted parts of the UK are being given the opportunity to claim a free 7kW Pod Point charging point and installation, worth over £1,200.
The schools will also benefit from an educational toolkit as part of the Electric Schools campaign and Pod Point’s in-house experts will visit schools nationwide to introduce the technology and deliver guest speaker sessions of EVs.
Mathew Andrews, deputy headteacher at Three Bridges Primary School in Crawley, West Sussex said: "As a school, we’re concerned about the future of the planet and as a part of this we want to encourage staff to consider moving to EVs.’
"Air pollution is a big problem for our school because of our close proximity to some major roads and the steady flow of traffic that runs directly past our school."
