24.7.2012 75% off home chargers for EV owners
Electric car owners in Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk can benefit from up to 75% off the cost of installing a POD Point home charging unit in their homes.
This has been made possible through a subsidy provided by the East of England's electric vehicle recharging network Source East, and reduces the overall ownership cost of running an electric car even lower.
The offer with Source East uses a grant subsidy to provide a POD Point communicating home charge point for £225, including installation. A year's membership to Source East is included in the cost (usually £10), which provides free access to the growing network of public charging points in the East of England.
POD Point communicating charge points are not yet available direct to the consumer in the UK. Specifically developed to give drivers simple information and controls to allow charging to be conducted at a minimum cost, the unit includes the facility to schedule vehicle charging to make the most of cheaper overnight electricity.
People with solar panels and domestic wind turbines can also use this feature to keep their charging costs to a minimum. If renewable energy is used to power an electric vehicle then the use of the car is truly zero emissions – with no pollutants emitted from the tailpipe or from energy generation.
Buying a standard POD Point home charge unit without these features from POD Point would set you back £375 before installation, which typically costs £300-£500 from a NICEIC qualified electrician.
The offer is available to electric vehicle owners in the Source East region: Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. For further information on this offer contact info@EValu8-ti.org.uk.
