The “Porsche Destination Charging” programme was launched in May 2020 to oversee roll out charger installations at selected hotels, airports, museums, shopping centres, sports clubs and marinas.

Tom Fox, Porsche Centre Preston managing director, said: “The Porsche Destination charging programme means that - in addition to charging at public charging points; at home; and, at a Porsche Centres - Porsche electric and hybrid owners can also charge their vehicles at a global network of luxury hotels, fine restaurants and premium venues; just like Ribby Hall Village.”

Two local businesses, PEI-Delta Limited in Poulton Le Fylde and Preston-based Smart EV, joined forces to install the chargers.

The Ribby Hall EV installation follows on from Lancashire’s first installation at Moor Hall Restaurant with Rooms in West Aughton.
