  1. Charging Locations
    We're looking for people to suggest new sites that they think would make good host chargepoint locations throughout the North West. Charge My Street, a community benefit society that installs and maintains EV chargepoints has managed to raise £130,000 from their recent share offer and, along...
  2. General EV Discussion
    As per this thread, I have had a bit of a saga getting my Podpoint (and smart meter, for that matter) installed and working. Everything is now working and I wanted to thank the good people of this forum for their advice and help. Loving my EV!

    Finally had a smart meter installed by Octopus: timing would have been perfect as the EV arrived three days ago and I've been poised to switch to Go tariff. Unfortunately the electrician who installed it couldn't get it to "commission", despite the unit having an aerial. He was a very pleasant...
  4. General Charging Discussion
    Following on from this thread, in which I received lots of helpful advice (culminating in me digging a trench and Sparky laying chunky armoured to outbuildings), things progressed yesterday: A Podpoint pair travelled from Bristol (to my location west of Swansea) to install my charger. They...
  5. General Charging Discussion
    Hello, first post here. I have signed up to Pod Point for a home charger and had an email saying they could not run cables under floor through my lounge next to existing cables due to regs. The existing cables are HDMI cables and coax/sky. Does this sound right - it seemed odd to me and I'm...

    Dear all, I've just ordered my first BEV via a salary sacrifice lease scheme at work. It seemed very affordable and included installation of a 7kW home-charger (Pod-Point). I signed on the dotted line and was delighted when Pod-Point contacted me to sort out OLEV grant and installation. I...
  7. Kia Niro
    Hi, I'm new here and waiting for my car to be delivered. So I'm considering different home charging units and wonder whether there is any need to install a smart home charger (as opposed to a 'dumb' one) if the e-niro has the capability to charge when energy is off-peak? I think it's called...
  8. General Charging Discussion
    I'm about to get an Ioniq, and a podpoint charger installed at home. The problem is where to put the charger. In the obvious place, it would be easy to use and close to where it's needed. However, this would result in the cable lying across the main way up to the house door. I'm worried that...

    hi all Please forgive me being a total novice, but... I am buying a 2015 renault zoe, and trying to sort out installation of a home charger. We live in an end of terrace house. We have a driveway, but it’s in front of our garage, which is in a block of 3 garages behind our home. Our meter is...
  10. General Charging Discussion
    My partner manages a fairly large block of serviced and traditional offices and after all my talk of charging and charge points he has put it to his managers that he would like to get some EV charge points installed in the car park. In short it's a nice selling point for the offices and might...

    I am going to be placing an order for my first EV soon, and will be getting a 32A 7kw chargemaster point installed in my garage. I was recently thinking about the install of this, and have a couple of questions. 1 - Can a charge point be mounted to a timber building? All installs i have seen...

    Hey guys, I am a student at the new Cornell Tech University in New York City and I am currently working on a project with Con Edison to make EV charging more affordable, accessible and competitive. I would love some feedback from you all regarding the topic. Specifically: - What are the...

    Hi guys, this is my first post. I've just ordered a 30kW Nissan Leaf Tekna. Pod Point are going to install a free charging point in my garage for me. I'm wondering if anyone has any experiences of this they can share. My garage isn't attached to my house, its at the end of the garden. It...

    I’m a sustainability coordinator at a rural Midwestern non-profit of ~200 co-workers supporting a diversity of operations (retreat center, tiny college, nursing home, etc). We are behind the curve as to EV adoption. There are only two public Level 2 stations in the county. Demand for a charger...

    My junction box is inside the house. Just recently the electricity company moved the meter from the same location to a box on the outside of the house. I read somewhere that OLEV installs only allow for a certain length run and one supplier said no lifting of floor boards etc. Can the...
  16. General Charging Discussion
    I don't have an EV yet, my Tesla is on order and due to be delivered in June. I am now researching what kind of plug I should install at home to charge my car as it will rarely be charged anywhere else given where I live. I am trying to figure out what the EV charging units do and what the...
