I dunno, it may encourage people to creep up at night and use your leccy!

And it must be left on at all times, so it will cost in the longer term, not much, but its still a cost.

seems a no-brainer

Plenty of companies doing it for free, some posted on the freebies board every little help.

Don't own leccy car myself. So who pays for this? The Taxpayers who don't own leccy cars?

Same people who pay for the feed in tariffs from solar panels, us!

Thanks OP.

It's free through British Gas and you don't need to be their customer or even have a Electric vehicle.

As with this Podpoint, it's not free! The taxpayer bears the cost. It will cost taxpayers £37 million to pay for the plug-in points -- £13.5 million for the homeowner ones. This is part of the Government’s £400million package to increase the uptake of ultra-low emission or ‘green’ vehicles. There's a £5,000 subsidy given to each electric car purchaser to make them 'affordable' (£8,000 for electric van owners).

Worth it just for the scrap copper :o)

How many times can you get one fitted

check the installers are supplying an earth rod too if outside charging to be compliant under iet regs. electric cars are the future

& there is ABSOLUTELY NO SUBSIDY EVER FOR THE CONSTRUCTION, STORAGE & TEARDOWN OF A NUCLEAR POWERSTATION, IS THERE!? FFS get a grip & get real, same tired old arguments,
fact is nuclear is at cost to the taxpayer, & worse still the environment.

IF there is a "whoopsie" with a uk nuclear powerstation exposing lots of people, workers, countryside to nuclear particles drifting in the wind (or far far worse) the company has absolutely no liability, we the taxpayer pay to tidy it up, seal it off, the clause is for no liability on the part of the operating company because it would affect their profit margin & board members, not because they give a stuff about you.

The beginnings of any energy network depends on data, clearly that data isn't coming in fast enough so this poor quality but useable charge point is all about deployment & data gleaned, what makes you think thats not already paid for under an agreed contract regardless of actual collection or not!? ..I mean government officials aren't exactly known for living in the shoes nor costs of the common people! ...bingo anyone?

Lots of dirty sources of energy, lots of clean sources being held back by feckless so & so's who don't look at the picture, merely resort to sheep worrying reportage via the daily fail & the like.

Some of us would have chargers fitted to get a wider charge network going & added to software to assist #EV drivers, a lot of whom right now would stop & hand over a pocket of scrapnel for the opportunity to charge more conveniently & reach further afield, off the beaten track.

How does this differ from so many other government schemes which ultimately come under "general taxation" ...you moan about it coming from the taxpayers pocket yet you neglect to realise that paid for assets are being given to rich corporations from abroad / uk in the form of now heavily debt ridden (oftn at government behest) hospitals (ours was fine till govt ordered it to build a pfi wing, now it's run by a profiteering company "circle health" ..& we pay around 6.3 -9x the operational costs to a private company over the odds over the duration of a "contract" (precisely why leicester? recently offed their pfi after years at a cost of around 29 million as it was cheaper to do it there & then rather than let them go ahead & have to fork out far far more*

*of taxpayers money.

Pasheast or whatever your name is, 400 million for a whole network doesn't even begin to cover the cost of your typical hospital pfi payback for 5yrs, get cross about all the hospitals, they are far more newsworthy.

go look at NHA party, ben goldacre on twitter etc, ...there will always be waste & poorly spent money from government "mates" companies or interests due to a donation to party funds, but the NHS is being scuppered & that affects you & yours every day.

Hands up if you have ever had to use the NHS?, then value it.

Have a Snickers, pal. You're always ranting when you're hungry. Better now?

so glib, read something other than the tabloids, can clearly see you spend your time in front of channel 5's "finest programming"
back at you.

Hot bought one !

Better off getting one with a type-2 socket instead of one with the 'old' type-1 cable attached.

All current and future cars are compatible with type-2 (UK/EU standard), this one with the cable attached will be useless if you get a car with a type-2 socket like the Renault Zoe, VW E-up/E-golf or the BMW i3. The Leaf/Ampera/Prius can still charge from a type-2 socket with the right cable.

All public charging points (except the 30 minute rapid chargers) are type-2 sockets.

Its probably worth paying £100 to upgrade from 16A to 32A which most of the suppliers will let you do. You'll be able to charge newer cars at twice the speed (4hrs rather than 8).


You only get one shot at the free pod, it could be £1000+ if you have to change it in the future so its worth doing it right if you're going to do it.

And the nuclear power plants are built right on the coast so one big wave/surge and its fukushima time for all of the UK.

Do they come to your home or send you a pack or what?

And given the need for vast amounts of water for cooling, what would you suggest instead?
