Red Kite Learning Trust recently took delivery of two brand new Nissan E-NV 200 Acenta Rapid all electric vans for use by its plumber and electrician.

The seven-strong team led by Estates Manager, John Mungovin provide a Facilities Management service to 19 schools around the district and the new vans, with a range of around 90 miles, will support the work they do.

Steve Howell for the Trust, which is based at Harrogate Grammar, said: “The school is proud of its Green Credentials, having 200kw of Solar Panels and a 195kw Biomass Boiler and so the choice of electric vans was made knowing that for a significant part of the year we can use the free electric generated by our panels.

“The vans will also support the very important work that we do in undertaking all aspects of Schools Facilities Management across the Harrogate area.”
