Kevin e-mails already sent :)

Having had a look at the website I found it quite hard to actually find out you were giving the equipment free, that seems to lack prominence or is squirreled away and not easy to find. I might have missed a vital link on the home page but that does need prominence? :?

I shall add a link to my website as soon as I update it.

The languish house hotel in petersfield have kindly let me plug in my car for the night. I expect that staying here for the night as helped. They may well be interested in a charging point.

hotel promises a free night's stay to the first 5 people to arrive by electric car

The latest site to deploy ZCW Charging Stations is the beautiful Langdale Estate in the Lake district;

http://langdale.co.uk/

As part of their launch they are offering "a free night's stay to the first five people to arrive by electric car";

62 to 1000 in 6 months time. Good luck :shock: I do prefer your scheme to the others.
Tied in with smart card / logins etc is all a non starter for me.

The scheme is ramping nicely with a couple of hundred Best Western hotels installing over the next few months... 1000 is a stretch target but no reason why we won't hit it.

Obviously, the whole thing would ramp quicker if more BVS members helped promote the scheme... I've good support from Leaf and Tesla drivers from other forums but not much here :wink:

Kevin. The A17 Abbey park farm shop lady manager was very pleasant and let me plug in FOC using a standard 13A socket while we had lunch. I gave her the faq print from your website and explained a bit about it, she seemed very receptive to a charge post in the car park, I suggest you follow it up with an e-mail to them :wink: It's a very pleasant place for a relaxed lunch and a useful geographic charge point on the bare flat plains of Lincolnshire.
