Small businesses in County Durham are being invited to borrow an electric van, to experience for themselves the benefits of going green.

Durham County Council’s low carbon economy and fleet teams are offering short term loans of electric vans to small and medium sized businesses, to help reduce their carbon emissions and fuel costs.

The vans, which will be free to loan for up to three weeks, are being funded by the council as part of its response to the climate emergency.

The scheme aims to encourage smaller businesses to cut their carbon emissions, a task which they typically find more difficult than larger businesses, as they do not have the resources to employ specialist energy advisers.
