I heard the cost of running an electric car is soon going to be more than running a petrol one.

Have you actually read the article? Or listened to the programme? Or read what this deal is about?
This deal relates to a home charging point. The article relates to public charging points.

I've had an electric car for 3 months now. I do 300 miles a week and charge at work and home. My fuel bill was £80 plus a week now it's less than £8. No brainer and if you plan your routes carefully you can charge as you go. We went to devon from Birmingham with two stops at services for half hour each and free charging!

I think a horse would probably cost even more, what with the price of hay these days and board and lodging.

this should be red hot what is wrong with you ppl

you do not need to have an electric car to get one of these

only really useful for people in cities, the range on electric vehicles does not make them a viable alternative to petrol or diesel cars for people who live in the countryside, so why have an ugly charger outside your home? And what if you live in a flat?

Still, Hot vote, because for some people, this is a good deal.

Anyone got a photo of an installed one?

This is hot for me. Too often such schemes get withdrawn and then you wish you'd taken up the offer. The prevalence (and performance) of electric cars is only going to go in one direction.

The thing that stops me getting one is that the technology's moving so fast that it's likely to be obsolete within a couple of years, and I don't want obsolete wiring + fitments across the garage. This may prove to be as useless as Betamax.

VHS V BETAMAX

VHS won but you still powered it the same way!!!

things are moving fast in the battery development but they will still be charged in the same way, this is only a way to power the battery

hope this helps

I wish you were right, but it isn't the only way to power a battery and the way forward looks now looks like being via induction charging. If that becomes the norm, as I suspect it will, these powerpoint-style chargers will be obsolete and useless, and I don't want one cluttering up my garage.

It isn't going to stop at induction charging either. Completely wireless charging is becoming more and more feasible.

I might be wrong but after doing a little research it would appear that the Domestic Chargepoint Grant has ended. Extract from the government website as follows...

"Please note that due its popularity the funds allocated to this scheme have been exhausted. A successor scheme has been launched that will begin on the 1 September 2014. Details of this new scheme will be published soon. "
source: gov website link

It's a bit confusing as to why it's still being promoted then by the Energy Saving Trust. Please take a look and see if I am missing something I would like to be proved wrong as I would have applied myself. Otherwise deal expired I'm afraid.

Lets all get something we dont need and pay for it through taxes , sounds like a bargain thats going to add about 50p to the value of your home. Who are the idiots behind this rubbish and who are the idiots who are applying for these just because its something free ?

If you can use it get it but whats the point if you cant ? save it for ten years time when its weathered, dangerous and useless because its never been used?

they are installed inside your garage, and not for exposure to the elements, except for the power cable when in use. it will add more than 50p to the value of your house, and in 5 yrs time many more ppl will have electric cars, I would sugest ppl get them for free, because the cost of the charger as well as the car may put ppl off buying them, hence the gov scheme

In 5 years time, it's highly unlikely that the chargers now being installed will be of much use. The technology is changing fast, and inductive charging (or something else) will probably have replaced present charging methods. That's assuming, of course, that we're still using battery powered cars at all.
