Free Home Charging Points for Electric Car Owners from POD PointAugust 28, 2012
POD Point, an electric vehicle charging company, is offering free home charging units
to electric and plug-in vehicle owners in East Anglia, the East and West Midlands – and also within the M25 for people who take part in a trial.
The POD Point charge point is the Solo 2, the latest ‘smart’ communicating charge point, with in-built GPRS technology that allows two way communications between the charge point and an online account, enabling electric and plug-in vehicle drivers to monitor how much energy they use, remotely lock the charge point or set charging schedules from a laptop, PC or mobile phone.
The POD Point charge points will be installed using a grant from the government’s Plugged-In Places scheme, and the offer is available to electric or plug-in vehicle owners in Source East and Plugged-in Midlands regions.
The fully installed charge point is worth over £1,000, can be installed in the home or workplace, and is subject to a free site survey. To apply, email POD Point firstname.lastname@example.org , or phone 0207 247 4114 with the requested installation address. More information and the full terms and conditions are available at: http://www.pod-point.com/pip-homecharge.
The offer is available to electric or plug-in vehicle owners in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Derbyshire, Essex, Herefordshire, Hertfordshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Rutland, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Suffolk, Telford & Wrekin, Warwickshire, West Midlands, and Worcestershire.
The Low Carbon London project
Electric and plug-in car owners living within the M25 can apply for a free home charging unit if they take part in the Low Carbon London electric vehicle usage trial , exclusively offered through a partnership between POD Point and UK Power Networks.
The Low Carbon London project is working towards the goal of reducing London’s emissions by 60% by 2025 and the year-long trial will measure how and when people charge their electric vehicles. Results from the trial will be used develop the capital’s electricity networks into a reliable and sustainable low carbon electricity network.
Electric vehicle drivers who join the trial will receive a fully installed, high specification communicating POD Point charge point completely free of charge, which they can keep after the trial has completed. The communicating charge points have an in-built GPRS device, which will transmit data (charging time and duration) back to secure servers for analysis.
The charge points will be provided by London-based electric vehicle specialist POD Point, and installed by UK Power Networks. This is the most advanced home charge unit available – the POD Point Solo charge unit. Participants will also benefit from a free online account where they can view details of charging cycles and total energy usage.
If you would like to take part in the trial or would like more information please contact: email@example.com or phone 0207 247 4114.

Low Carbon London wants London to become the world’s leading low carbon capital by 2025 . The trial will test the impact of flexible energy tariffs, alternative energy sources and other initiatives on electric vehicle charging habits. Participants in the trial will not be required to do anything other than follow their normal EV charging pattern. Free charge points are available only through UK Power Networks and POD Point.
