With the aim of collecting more than £15,000 for The Climate Coalition and Fuel Poverty Action, three team members from NRT Eco and a rider from Gridserve will depart from the NRT Group headquarters in Banstead on Thursday 3rdJune. The peloton will visit six counties in just four days.
At the halfway point, the group will arrive at the myenergi UK facility in Lincolnshire, where they’ll be welcomed with a meal cooked by a local restaurant and bespoke physiotherapy sessions. The ride will culminate at the Gridserve all-electric forecourt in Braintree, Essex, a staggering 2,035km later.
Adam Smith, divisional director at NRT Eco, commented: “The NRT Eco division was founded to support the UK Government’s target of achieving net zero carbon by 2050. From battery storage systems and solar PV, to smart home technology, energy assessments and electric vehicle charging points (such as the myenergi zappi), we install a wide range of solutions to help households become greener.
“As part of our efforts to promote decarbonisation, we wanted to do something different to raise awareness about eco living, as well as raise valuable funds for two charities close to our hearts. The support from the industry has been amazing – we’ve been blown away by the donations, messages and positive feedback.”
Jordan Brompton, co-founder and CMO at myenergi, added: “As an approved myenergi installer, we wanted to do all we could to help Adam and the team smash their targets and raise widespread awareness of eco living.
“Alongside providing a TLC session at our HQ and providing funding towards gear for the ride, we’ll be promoting the event far and wide. It’s a great cause and we’re keen to drive further awareness. If you haven’t already, head over to the fundraising page and donate today!”
