At Millbrook, we take our eco credentials seriously and provide our guests with many eco facilities, including EV Charging points. In total, we have four Tesla Destination charge points (ccs) and three granny charging points (slow chargers).
We have decided to go for quantity and not speed as I'm sure you don't want to get up halfway through the night to allow another guest to charge when your car has enough charge. We also have an excellent high speed charging infrastructure around North Devon with the nearest 50KW charger only 12 minutes away in Torrington and high-speed chargers in Westward Ho!, Bideford, Barnstaple and Braunton. We have included the 50KW chargers in our online Touch Stay guest book for easy reference.
In the summer most of our electricity is produced by the PV panels we have, and we installed a Tesla battery last year, this is performing well, We encourage our guests to charge in the day time when the power is free. You are also welcome to charge overnight using the chargers.
The chargers are placed in your usual parking areas, so you don't need to move your car to charge or allow another guest to charge.
We have an honesty policy for the electricity you use. There is a money box in the Mill entrance, and all we ask is that you donate what you feel is the right amount of money for the electricity you use, as at present we are on quite an expensive tariff of about 16p KW. Hopefully, this will change next year, and we can move over to the Tesla tariff when our contract ends.
