Subsidies

I just heard today that if you live in the Borough of Milton Keynes that you can get an installation of a charger subsidised. The rates of subsidy are as follows:

Business premises: 50%
Home: 75%

Unfortunately I'm in Northampton - not far up the road, but too far to qualify. It's almost worth moving to MK!

Full details here:

RE: Subsidies

Good news - if you live in the Midlands/East Anglia area of England there are now two charging point companies fighting to give you a free home charger:

I was told by my dealer that I have to calculate around 1000 Euros for the regular 3 kW wall box with installation...

RE: Subsidies

I think under the UK schemes the government actually pays the supplier for the 'free' chargepoint (but you probably have to pay for its installation by an electrician).

Which I consider completely ok when you get the wall box for free!

I guess my government is talking a lot about emobility (they want 1 million evs in 2020, which is very unlikely from a todays point of view) but is not willing to do anything (or maybe they give the money to the big companies...).

In France there is a 7000 eco bonus for a new ev....wow!

RE: Subsidies

In the UK we get 5000 pounds off (which is about 7000E) - do you not get anything?

Nothing. The only subsidies is a 10-year-no-tax option which adds up for me to 3000 Euro (my current car costs 308 Euros/yr. tax). But if you have a small petrol (not diesel) car this could be only 1500...
