a) It sounds like you may have some comment on the BVS's [url="http://www.batteryvehiclesociety.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=2318"]EV Charging Point Recommendations Installation Guide[/url]. There was always a plan to re-issue this document and it sounds like this might be a goo...

Re: Brighton to London "Future Car Challenge"

I plan to enter the Elise although it will require a little planning with at least two full charges required to reach Brighton from Leicester. I may be able to help with this. I can get you access to a 32A charge point in Winchester and possibly some other locations as well. Please let me know if I...

Re: Charging Points - comments please

I guess you are aware of Tim Nicklin's EV network ? Yes, I'm aware of Tim's project and actually use the "EV Charger Finder" iPhone app that includes his database. I will ensure that the charge points we install are listed on the site as they go live... Your public sockets are a step up f...

Re: Charging Points - comments please

Is the electricity free as well? A Tesla on a 63A socket can suck down a lot of power! Are the only accesible with some sort of key/card?
