Leading UK electric vehicle charging company POD Point is offering free home charging units to electric and hybrid vehicle owners throughout East Anglia and the East and West Midands.

A fully installed charge point normally costs approximately £1,000, but working in tandem with the UK Department of Transport’s existing plugged-in-places scheme, which subsidizes the installation of a charge point and a portion of the device itself, POD Point is now offering to pay the balance of the machine for cars registered to two selected charge schemes in the region; Source East and Plugged-in Midlands.

The POD Point charge point on offer is the Solo 2, the latest smart-communicating charge point that comes with a GPRS, allowing two way communication between the charge point and an online account. Such connectivity allows users to monitor how much energy they are using, remotely lock the charge point, or even set charging schedules from a laptop, PC, or mobile phone.

The POD Point charge points are available to electric or plug-in vehicle owners in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Derbyshire, Essex, Herefordshire, Hertfordshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Rutland, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Suffolk, Telford & Wrekin, Warwickshire, West Midlands, and Worcestershire.
