COMO - THE ELECTRIC LAKE

Como and its electric lake
Como is the city of Alessandro Volta, inventor of the electric battery. The lake, which takes its name from the city, lies at the heart of an area brimming with natural beauty, boasting many private and public citizens who take the preservation of the environment seriously. The past and present of Como and its lake provide the most suitable setting for this initiative: Como - The Electric Lake, which aims to conserve for future generations the history, science and everything achieved in this area, noted for its unique, world-famous landscape.

The organising committee of about twenty prominent figures from around the lake – hoteliers, Municipalities, public and private owners of cultural estates – all agreed on a fundamental issue: the absolute necessity to defend the general environment and particularly the priceless landscape of this area. The development of the use of electricity in transport is of outstanding importance, made increasingly possible by recent technology, especially regarding environmental protection.
The first result of this initiative consists of the insertion of about 17 destinations that will house special connectors for charging electric vehicles, offered by the american company Tesla, which will also be part of the Tesla Destination Charging circuit. This is just the first, important step and the committee would like to continue developing in this direction. On Internet it is possible to consult what each sponsor is already doing to protect the environment.

The first experimental electric boats are being built at the Matteri Shipyards (Lezzeno).
Como and its electric lake: a correct, efficient use of electricity is constantly developing to safeguard the beauty of these waters and the territory, for the history of a great scientist such as Volta, who was born and worked here and to attract attention to the landscape and environment.
The project Como - The Electric Lake includes several important local companies in the hotel and the marine industry, in addition to some of the most beautiful gardens of the Como Lake belonging to the network Grandi Giardini Italiani and three municipalities of lake area.
