Electric post vans to be introduced in Cavan and Monaghan

Electric post vans will be introduced in Cavan and Monaghan later this year.

It’s part of An Post’s sustainable activities that will also see solar panels installed to post offices.

The company confirmed to Northern Sound News that electric vehicles and solar panels will be rolled out across Cavan this year.

While an electric fleet will be based in Monaghan by the start of 2021.

Solar Panels have already been installed at the Monaghan Delivery Service Unit as part of a pilot programme.

Last month, An Post became the first postal service provider in the world to attain zero carbon emission delivery status in a capital city and this will be achieved in Cork, Galway, Kilkenny, Limerick and Waterford by the end of 2020.
