Free Electric Vehicle Charging Package!

Found 17th Jan 2014
Thanks to the government's subsidised funding scheme, British Gas is offering electric vehicle users nationwide the option of having a safer charging point installed at home for free[1*]. Those who take up this offer will also get access to the POLAR public network (an operating division of Chargemaster Plc) which will keep them charged up when out and about at no extra cost.

To qualify for this offer you will need to have:

[1] Off-street parking.

[2] Suitability of the proposed site for the installation services, the electrician will advise on this.

[3] A suitable O2 data network connection, which will be tested by the British Gas electrician. This is to enable the charging point to meet criteria stipulated by the Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV). If this is not possible you will be offered a non-data-enabled charging point and advised of any cost involved as these are not covered by the government’s subsidised funding scheme.

[4] Permission from the homeowner or landlord if you don't own the property.

Click on the deal link in order to find out the details of this offer and how to apply.

[1*] This offer is subject to availability and any proposed offer end date will be published in advance. Currently there is no cap on the number of people who can take advantage of this offer but the offer shall be subject to availability.

Already posted, I'm sure, but the main problem seems to be to decide which outlet to go for. British Gas tell me there are three - all incompatible with each other and expensive to change over. Different cars need different types.

Sounds mad - any experts on this?

Go for the Blue one

Can I have this installed now, for future purchase of an electric car, as it is free ?

Sure - but you'd need to know which car to decide which type of outlet. They vary.

People who will probably never get an electric car are getting these fitted. The companies aren't bothered as they get paid off the government who are wasting our taxes on stuff like this instead of fixing the roads we have. This would benefit everyone except the garages repairing peoples car suspension.

I don't think the office of low emission vehicles are responsible for repairing portholes?

think the point is that people who don't have or will never have an electric car are getting these at our expense at a time when taxes could be used for other more important things, pot holes, schools etc.

Well, I've been thinking about getting one, on the chance that it is likely that electric cars may become the norm over the next decade.

Hopefully you will pay for it yourself, then, instead of taking up a 'deal' like this one which we taxpayers will have to cough up for.

Thanks Tax payers, i dont have an electric car and probably wont but it might add a smidge of value to my property. Getting one of these fitted in a few weeks!!

So get on board and have one installed!
I really doubt that they would do anything sensible like you suggest, I.e. using this money for a good cause, we are taking about the government after all!

I got one last autumn. Don't have an electric car. And won't have for at least two years. I pay a shed load of tax. Bit of added value to my property, short term future proofing. Nice.
