Jas P Wilson invests in first electric vehicle


As well as HVO as a substitute for conventional diesel, mentioned in our previous Net Zero post, we have also been looking at other green fuel/power solutions for our company vehicles and in June we invested in our first electric vehicle. We chose a fleet vehicle which contributes a significant amount of mileage on a daily basis, on business related activities.

The initial early-stage feedback is also very positive in that it is estimated that running this electric vehicle displaces approximately 92kg of CO2 emissions per day (460kg of CO2 per week, 1.8 tonnes per month, 22 tonnes per year).

Part of this investment also involved the installation of an electric vehicle charging point at the Dalbeattie site, where the vehicle can be fully charged. The longer-term plan would be to possibly replace other fleet vehicles with electric or hybrid vehicles as part of a rolling vehicle replacement programme. This will have a very positive impact on our business carbon footprint and our ambitions to become a Net Zero business by 2030.
