Electric car owners and potential buyers in the East of England have until the end of March to claim a free home charging point.
As part of its affiliation with the Source East Plugged-in Places scheme, POD Point is offering homeowners the chance to claim a government grant to cover the installation of one of its wall-mounted 230 Volt AC Solo 2 units, worth upwards of £1,000.
This charging point is compatible with most of electric cars including popular models such as the Nissan Leaf, Mitsubishi i-MiEV, Toyota Prius Plug-in and Citroen C-Zero.
The offer is only available until March 31, 2013, with a new, national scheme taking its place from April. The national scheme however, will only cover up to 75 per cent of the cost of installing home charging points (more details on that here), so EV owners are being advised to take up Source East’s deal while it lasts.
Some workplaces may also be eligible for the grants and there is also funding available for Pod Point 240V AC twin unit for street installations and commercial use.
Both types of charging unit allow you monitor usage online, set charging windows (ideal for ensuring only cheaper rate electricity is used), and remotely control the unit if necessary.
You can apply for a grant regardless of whether you currently own an EV or not. For more details and to apply for a grant, visit: Pod Point.
