Well done to Jim McCausland, Manager Casey’s Circle K and Peter, Jim and the Casey Family for their foresight in bringing this EV Fast Charger to Town.
This is great for people with EV cars in the area and it is fantastic for promoting more visits to Roscommon by addressing the EV fast charging black spot. The fast charging point will put Roscommon Town back on the map for people with EV cars planning weekends away in Ireland etc. Jim’s determination in getting the EV Fast Charger unit installed before the Summer 2019 Tourism season is truly commendable. Jim, who is Chairperson of the County Roscommon Tourism forum is acutely aware of how this practical measure will improve visitor numbers to the County.
Casey’s Circle K is being proactive and putting the necessary infrastructure in place that will see Electric vehicles fully charged in half an hour. They are also playing an important role in encouraging more people to opt for Electric Vehicles by improving the supporting infrastructure, thus helping the environment.
I am disappointed that we are still waiting on Government to invest in the network of fast charging points in the Country and heartened that a local business is taking the initiative and showing their commitment to the area.
I would also like to thank John Mockler, Roscommon Municipal District Coordinator again for his assistance in improving the visibility of the standard (slow charging) EV charging areas in Roscommon Town with green marking thus making it easier for people with electric cars to charge their vehicles without obstruction.
