This may be old news to some but thought I'd add a bit more bashing to everyone's favourite installation company British Gas.
Customer today surprised we could still fit him a home charge unit for free, kept mentioning £115 fee that BG wanted to fit it next week. Thought he was asking for the 30amp charger hence the cost. Checked their web site - nope there charging £115 inc vat already 'due to the change in the grant recently announced by OLEV'. Think we all know the grant reduces 1st Sept not as soon as they think they can rinse some more customers who actually need the chargers.

Larger customer base, free polar access means more polar "customers" too... Would look good on a sales brochure or when seeking more funding, perhaps? IF we're going down the cynical route. ;)

Edit to add it also means people will actually be using the Polar network, so for example if Milton Keynes people take up the offer suddenly the usage wont look quite so dire. OLEV are happier.
