Noticed a change in pricing for rapids in Lidl. Only 28p on Fridays, while 40p on other days. Odd implementation indeed.
I'm only surprised it took them so long tbh.Same at my nearest one. Not entirely unexpected given the market currently, but a shame. I suspect a lot of people had picked up on their cheap pricing, use of the pod point has skyrocketed at my local the past few months.
Podpoint pricing is set by the host, not by podpoint. Podpoint don't sell electric, just chargers and service agreement to a host.Tesco appears to be unchanged, my local Tesco are still free for 11kw and 22kw with 28p for 50kw
I expect they have a different agreement with podpoint
This is correct, there is a complicated agreement between the supplier of the ChargePoint and the host. The host provides the land and guarantees to pay the electricity bill. The ChargePoint provider finances the ChargePoint and the installation, including the interaction with the DNO. The ChargePoint provider then operates the billing mechanism and deducts the cost of the equipment (this is where they make their profit) and installation plus interest (more profit) from the amount paid by the motorist. The remainder goes back to the host to cover electricity and profit.Podpoint pricing is set by the host, not by podpoint. Podpoint don't sell electric, just chargers and service agreement to a host.
