The EcoCar in Galatas
In the summer of 2020, we had a new, environmentally friendly arrival in our area. The arrival of the EcoCar in Galatas! Climate change calls for drastic changes to our habits, with the aim to reduce our ecological footprint. Darsinos Services and Ritsa Darsinou, whose interview to Katheti you can read here, recognized this need and took action!
They became the Argo-saronic representatives of EcoCar and brought electric cars and mopeds to the area for rent to locals and tourists. That means that you can now rent the EcoCar in Galatas, so that you enjoy your vacation in an environmentally friendly way.
With a capacity of two people, this lovely little car is a little over two meters long, only 130 cm wide and 157 cm high. It has a range of over 100 km, and top speed of 45 or 80 km/hour, depending on its power.
The EcoCar is charged in a simple house outlet and, impressively, you can drive it with a moped driving license. But, mainly, it does not burden the environment. It has zero emissions and the energy that it consumes for every 100 kms is equivalent to 1€!
The EcoCar is produced in China, but its “godmother” is the Greek company ECO//SUN. ECO//SUN was established in 1996 and is based in Thessaloniki. It operates in the field of Renewable Energy Sources and Energy Saving by providing services to individuals, professionals and businesses. The company states that its policy is fully aligned with Greek and European environmental legislation, promoting renewable energy in Greece.
Examples like the ones of these two companies make us hopeful about the future of Greek and global environment. Katheti supports any innovation that moves in the direction of independence from fossil fuels and reduction of environmental pollution. We also consider very important any touristic businesses initiatives that aim at moving towards a more sustainable tourism, both local and nationally. Hence, we promise to highlight and promote any such effort, both in Troizinia-Methana and on Poros!
