This innovative initiative is part of Shed Grounds Maintenance's ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability and marks a significant step forward in their efforts to reduce carbon emissions and promote green practices within the industry. Shed Grounds Maintenance will use their new fully electric van to service the Chesterfield Royal Hospital and other local sites.

Peter Botham Managing Director of Shed Grounds Maintenance, said,

"We are thrilled to introduce our first fully electric van. It’s a real challenge for our type of business to move wholly away from fossil fuel due to the current range of electric vehicles and power of electric machinery. However, technology is ever improving making it more accessible and suitable for our tasks. We constantly look for alternatives to using fossil fuel, and this milestone represents our unwavering dedication to sustainability and providing environmentally friendly services. We love to embrace electric technology, not only do we reduce our carbon footprint but it also prioritises the well-being of our clients and the local community."

Benefits of Shed Grounds Maintenance’s Fully Electric Van and Equipment:

  1. Zero Emissions: The electric van produces no tailpipe emissions, significantly reducing the amount of pollutants released into the atmosphere. This helps improve local air quality and contributes to the overall well-being of the community and hospital staff and patients.
