Excellent news, I'm currently working on a large council based scheme so understand all the "politics and bureaucracy"
Yep, councils are a lot of fun... I'm trying to get a local town council to install a single charge point and that's all ready taken almost a year with no sign yet of real progress....
Have you thought of approaching supermarkets i.e Tescos etc they might jump at the chance of a freebie install if it encourages EV users to use their shops over competitors.
It sounds like a good idea.... I'm trying to focus my efforts on providing the charging point hardware, installation, finance, and coordinating the various groups that show interest. I'm hoping that individuals will get involved who then go after specific prospects like the supermarkets.
The only other issue I would look at is if anything ever went wrong or anyone was hurt by the charge point who would be responsible for this, the user using it, the owner of the point, or the installer, or yourself for running the scheme .................food for thought ???
All of the installations will be certified by the installer. We also intend to do an annual safety check. The scheme itself will be administered by a limited company to minimise the liability to the people running the scheme. Ultimately however, the user will need to accept that they are liable for using the charge point.... I've discussed this with a lawyer and believe this can be covered by a written disclaimer at the site.
