Emissions Based Green Tariff
We've launched an Emissions Based Green Tariff at our Clipstone Street car park.
We're thrilled to announce the launch of the very first Emissions Based Green Parking Tariff at our Clipstone Street car park in London’s Congestion Zone.
Save as Much as 20%
Central London parking just got a whole lot more attractive for people driving Hybrid, Electric or Low-Emission vehicles, who can save as much as 20% of the normal tariff.
Vehicle emission checks will be performed using advanced software developed by our parking partner, APT Skidata. Those vehicles omitting less than or equal to 75g/km of CO2 will qualify for the new Green Tariff, which will be discounted automatically.
London in particular has been at the centre of the air pollution topic for a while, firstly with the introduction of the Congestion Charge Zone in 2003 and more recently the ‘T-Charge’, which is a fee to be paid by owners of older, more polluting vehicles when driving in Central London from October 2017.
Our new emission-based tariff supports the same principles as the ‘T-Charge’ levy, both hoping to combat air pollution and other harmful environmental effects by rewarding drivers who opt for lower emission or electric vehicles.
Ben Ziff, Managing Director of CitiPark, commented, “We believe that the infrastructures supporting the auto-motive industry and government green agendas should also be adopting the same forward thinking approach. We are investing a great deal into our London car parks at the moment, not just aesthetically but operationally too”.
We’ve also recently partnered with Tesla to offer customers the use of Tesla Destination Charging Bays across our car park portfolio, including a number of EV Charging sockets at our Clipstone Street car park. The Central London site also offers a number of universal EV charging sockets to accommodate all Electric Vehicles, with the outlook to install more in order to cater for the rising number of Electric Vehicles on UK roads.
We believe this pioneering initiative and our investment in EV charging facilities are perfectly timed, with more people opting to drive Hybrid, Electric or Low-Emission vehicles than ever before in the UK. In 2013, approximately 3,500 registered plug-in vehicles were on the road, jumping to around 78,000 by October 2016, and nextgreencar.com predicting a further increase to 250,000 plugin vehicles by 2020.
