HiTopp Way is actually close to me and use it reasonably frequently at the weekends so may pop by and check it out on Saturday.
Just a comment on the provisional pricing from the GMEV website.
35p/kWh seems reasonable enough for the rapids but 25p/kWh seems a little on the high side for a 7kW charger.
Would it not be better to price the 7kW charge at around 15p/kWh so much closer to a domestic tariff so people are not put off using them.
I would imagine the last thing you want is to put in a load of new infrastructure only to see usage plummet and it sitting idle.
Perhaps a dual pricing structure would work, one for Greater Manchester residents who could say pay a small annual fee for an RFID that grants reduced pricing rates and one for non-residents with the higher rates as they aren’t contributing via local taxation etc?
So maybe something along the 25/35 for non-residents and say 15/25 for residents with an annual fee of say £20?
Just throwing some ideas out there for you 🙂
Thanks for the feedback and i agree the 25p is quite high but it has been positioned as 'up to' currently as we work on our membership tariff. That will likely be the PAYG rate but it's still to be officially confirmed. Amey and TFGM have agreed not to charge a membership fee so we need to work out how that works with our costs and projected usage.
