Jack's Alt-Stays Case Study

The Background

Daniel Jack and Adam Jack, two cousins bound by a shared love for adventure and a deep appreciation for the environment, are on a mission to redefine Scotland’s tourist accommodation landscape. United by a belief in challenging the status quo and approaching things with a unique perspective, these visionary cousins introduced ‘Jacks Alt-Stays’, an innovative Cabin concept that has not only revolutionised the way travelers experience Scotland but also pioneers sustainability in the tourism industry.

Coming off a big win at Scottish Edge, the Jack cousins decided to continue their commitment to a more sustainable way to tour Scotland and looked in to implementing EV Charging facilities at their Millport cabins. The question was, where to begin…

The Solution

To ensure that their vision of sustainable tourism becomes a reality, the Jack cousins strategically partnered with fellow Scottish Edge winners, Connekt EV Charging. Recognising the crucial role of eco-friendly transportation in their endeavor, they decided to install four Garo Entity 7.4 Charging stations. These state-of-the-art charging stations are not just a practical solution for electric vehicles; they are a symbol of the commitment to reducing the environmental impact associated with travel.

The Jack cousins have also embraced Connekt’s bespoke software, seamlessly integrating it into the charging stations. The innovative software not only enhances the efficiency of the charging process but also enables real time monitoring and management. This provides a seamless and user-friendly experience for drivers.

"We had 4x 7.4kW chargers installed at our hot tub cabin site in Millport, Isle of Cumbrae - Jack's Alt-Stays. We are over the moon with the job the guys did. All the Connekt team across the office, groundworks and electrical were a pleasure to work with. They also made us aware of eligible grant funding. The team went above and beyond to accommodate the limited timeframes we had around guests. All worked out perfectly as planned. Would highly recommend."
