The initiative is a joint project with Tourism Holdings Ltd, and has been part-funded by the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA).

The chargers will mean charging options are available for travellers in any electric vehicle, including cars and motorhomes.

"We see this as an important step in providing services for our visitors, whether they be international or domestic," says Fergus Brown, Chief Executive of Holiday Parks New Zealand.

"As the available electric vehicle fleet in New Zealand grows, many Kiwis will be using these vehicles to get away for a holiday. Holiday parks want to be part of a sustainable approach to operating in the tourism industry, and it will be encouraging to see these chargers used."
