Apparantly they are meant for taxis!It does look like a bit of a mess.
Milton Keynes is similar, but different. There is only one provider here (Chargemaster) for all of the public posts, but maintenance is very patchy - I've seen posts out of action for 3 months+ regularly. But then, usage is almost zero since the Chargemaster pricing came in (avg 2 charging sessions per day across 170 posts), so what's the point of maintaining them...?
Jobs for the boys !It would be nice to be able to shop around for energy suppliers, so that the price you pay at the post isn't determined by one company holding you to ransom.
... The whole OLEV thing... I mean, how do people with such little commercial accumen get put in positions where they're custodians of millions of pounds of taxpayer funds?
By focusing on their private receipt of tax payer funds in the form of salaries and pensions first, never taking risks in persuit of any cause, no matter how worthwhile, seeing success as dangerous and always covering their arses as priority no 1, thus being totally unaccountable for the inevitable organisational failure this attitude engenders. Perfect departmental promotion material.... The whole OLEV thing... I mean, how do people with such little commercial accumen get put in positions where they're custodians of millions of pounds of taxpayer funds?
Not necessarily true when charging is provided as part of another service e.g hotel stay or as part of an energy company's aims e.g Ecotricity (their issues are being resolved and have had nothing to do with their chargers being free)Until we have a network work of chargers that is truly available to all on a pay as you go basis, with realistic charges, we will continue to have problems with quality and availability. How you can anyone maintain a quality network when there is no real revenue stream to make it viable
Yes it is but......This is a depressing article. Is London really this bad ?
in this case I did that as the number is on the post but with no joy. I spoke to the engineer directley he said he would fix the problem then contact me.I have found that reporting to the post vendor usually gets things done, In london Podpoint will send out podboy to fix broken posts, usually pretty quickly
