Eco-friendly community goes for eco-friendly transport 03 November 2011

Transit Connect Electric has found favour with residents of the UK's greenest community at Unity Gardens, in Long Sutton in Lincolnshire, after showing it can cost less than £50 annually to power Ford's light commercial vehicle.

Residents of the eco-friendly community lived with the Transit Connect Electric for a day, carrying out day-to-day jobs, such as taking children to school, delivering waste to be recycled and transporting home-grown crops.

"The electric vehicle is an obvious natural progression for Unity Gardens," states Unity Gardens creator and award-winning eco-architect Dr Jerry Harrall. "The residents are generating more energy than they are using, so it makes sense for them to take advantage of the excess to power an electric vehicle."
