What EV are you interested in next and why?
A smaller, less expensive one for my wife.
What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Rolec 7kW which I got when I bought a PHEV nearly 7 rears ago. Given that original quote for the cost was only £300 which only rose to £500 when I specified a significant rerouting of the cables through the loft and under the eaves of the garage to conceal the cabling, YES. Having seen the quotes nowadays which are often more than double in that time, I can’t help but think that there is blatant profiteering going on.
What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Bulb – yes, as it would gain me credit.
What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
ChargePlace Scotland for day-to-day charging and Tesla supercharging for distance travelling. Most ChargePlace Scotland chargers in my region are free to use. They are also numerous and well positioned.
