Electric taxis come to St.Albans

Environment Matters - Tue, 14/07/2015 - 1:20pm

Charging an electric taxi at St Albans

With pollution levels in St.Albans town centre, and at other places around the District, well over EC safe levels, anything that helps reduce emissions from local vehicles is a good thing. This kind of pollution, mainly from diesel vehicles like taxis, is associated with all sorts of health problems, including asthma and cardiovascular disease. As we’ve heard in previous programmes, ot also contributes to climate change and causes over nitrification of the countryside.

So we were delighted to speak to Alex Calnun a director and founder of Electric Blue, a company which has just launched 2 electric taxis in St.Albans. These noise free, emissions free taxis can be hired by any local taxi drivers, so if you’d like to see them out and about then tell your taxi driver that you’d like to be able to hire an electric taxi.

When I saw the new taxis I was impressed with how quiet and comfortable they are, so they’ll be helping with noise pollution too.

New Barnfield Incinerator Update: Following the rejection of Veolia’s Planning Application for an incinerator at New Barnfield by the previous Secretary of State at the Govt Dept of Communities and Local Govt (Eric Pickles) in July 2014, Veolia made a legal challenge, in Aug 2014, which they won, in January 2015. Therefore the Planning Application went back to the Sec of State at the DCLG for re-determination. The current Sec of State at the DCLG is Greg Clark. He will make the new decision on or before Thursday, so it looks like the waiting is nearly over for the New Barnfield campaigners.
