Durham’s luxury venue, The South Causey Inn, has invested in smart electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure to keep up with demand.

The South Causey Inn has partnered up with Elmtronics, an independent supplier and installer of EV charging equipment, for support in selecting and installing the chargepoints that best suited the needs of the venue.

The 22kW Dual Eve chargepoints, located in the main car park and connected to the Hubsta network, allow for two vehicles to charge simultaneously. Guests and staff members can charge their fully electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles with ease, using a fob or the Hubsta app.

Susan Moiser, owner of The South Causey Inn, said: “We are always looking at ways to future-proof our business and an investment into electric vehicle chargepoints will help to achieve this goal, with the ever-increasing popularity of electric vehicles.

“We have already taken steps by introducing electric buggies to use as transport around the site and are constantly looking at ways to make the site more economically friendly.”

The South Causey Inn is set in 100 acres of beautiful Beamish Valley countryside and offers casual dining experiences, relaxing stays, weddings and corporate events.

Lyndsey Hetherington, associate consultant for EV charging at Elmtronics, added: “I was delighted to work with The South Causey Inn, it’s a place I visit regularly with friends and family. It has been great working with Susan, providing her with the support needed to install the chargepoints.

“The facility will attract new visitors and the infrastructure installed can be increased over time to occupy more staff and guest vehicles.”

Launched in January 2019, the intelligent Hubsta network connects to over 55,000 chargepoints worldwide.

Customers wishing to use the chargepoints at The South Causey Inn can now register with Hubsta via the Hubsta app using a smartphone or online at www.hubsta.co.uk. The charging point location can be found on the Zap Map app.
