The pending ministerial decision is across the board. This covers all installers and charge station manufacturers not just The Phoenix Works or ROLEC.

I hope to have more news soon.

The driver is the full allocation of this FY's £10million. Scheme is still operating, but but only for installs up to the date of a forthcoming announcement or announced scheme end date. Announcement could be next week.

10,000 charging points installed this FY vs 9,151 plugin-car-grant eligible cars sold since 2011.

Ok, own up. Who has 5 EVSEs in their garage?

1 self funded tethered on front, 1 OLEV funded 32a socket on front, 1 DIY EVSE Build day in garage. Can't quite make the 5 ....!

1 self-funded 32A off wall and in garage waiting for installation in new house. 1 OLEV funded 16 A on garage wall.

Then when I move another OLEV funded at new house.

Again, can't make 5 but I am sure a lot of us will have more than one what with people self-funding the others :)

I had an installation organised at a house that my brother and I are renovating for him to move into. He will get an EV soon and I can charge when visiting/helping with the work. It was due on 21st and no sign by midday, called the installers who told me that the booking had been changed to 22nd with no advice to me. Hope we can still get it before it ends, it has been rescheduled for 4th June, the next day I can take off work.

British Gas pushed my install out twice. Engineer on holiday and then not available. Rescheduled for 2nd June. Just waiting for phone call to say no free lawn mower. ;-)

Very frustrated to be stuck in the middle of all this having been waiting since April, but getting pushed back due to lots of discretionary "Get them fitted at other peoples house you *might* visit" installs. :mad:

LEAF delivery has now been scheduled for June 2nd, Type1/Type2 cable and STILL NO home charger. Hope this ends well for genuine EV drivers, but I somehow doubt it :(

Ok, part of this is down to me - I didn't want to give money to Chargemaster, and wanted a Rolec unit over Pod-point, so went to @Thephoenixworks who have proved to be very busy.

Yes, I know what you mean. I got my Leaf last week, I've been reading about charging stations for months, finally decided on a Rolec 16A because it's a modular unit and could be upgraded in the future. Then mid last week I read the 16A units at slimmer than the 32A units, so decide that's it a Rolec 32A is what I want. And then I find out the scheme has hit the buffers. Typical!
I suspect I may end up just installing a socket on the garage wall and using the EVSE brick for a while...
