That's using man maths. I see your point, but you've got to do that every month for it to make economic sense.Also Polar has "free" points that are totally free on Plus,
Sorry nice attempt but I just don't find it truly representative as it is. You have 2 columns for CYC, why not 3 for BP? Polar Plus, Instant and Contactless, and i'm not convinced CYC/D2N2 have any chargers over 50kw?, so those columns should be dashed or blank. You have just fudged things to look neat in one column to produce a pretty graph. Also polar Instant rates are 18p up to 7kw, 25p for 50 kw and 35p for 150kw. Yet you have shoved in a nominal £8 which is the Polar plus 150kw rate buts takes no account for the £7 subscription fee.Thanks, I haven't included "free" or home chargers, as these are easy to calculate. My idea here was a quick reference to costs. And the graph gives an estimate of let's say how much it would be to charge 20kWh on a certain network.
What I did not expect, was how irrelevant the initial minimum payment is on CYC/D2N2.
We use it enough that it makes sense in the nearby town -> We would be members anyhow however as I also require a Polar card to be a member of a couple of private networks for my clients parking sites (not on Polar map but use Polar). So in my case Polar card is a sunk cost given I ideally need the card in non-covid times to be able to get back from one client office in paritcular (given lack of Rapids nearby). (The card is also to allow the client to be able to bill me for the electricity used, again via my polar account). I suspect this will also be the case for many others in future where employers use non-employees for some work elements and need a way of billing these for electricity that doesn't involve cash passing.That's using man maths. I see your point, but you've got to do that every month for it to make economic sense.
As indeed would be the Penalty Notice you'd get for spending more than 3 hours in a Tesco car park !If you take it far enough, if I was prepared to park my car on a Tesco charger until it was full. Which I witness a driving school guy with his Leaf doing the other day. Then I could have totally free charging. The mile and a half walk home and back is a little off putting.
