I think it's a shame that they don't do any round here. I live right by Sandbanks and with the amout of very rich people who love to be seen being enviroment friendly (footballers/wives, businessmen etc...) I think the area is missing a prime time to get it all set up and running and be a leading example to the rest of the counties that are futher away from London.

Where would you like charging points to appear around your area, Lee?
I was talking to a guy earlier on today who has set up a charity. He has designed a low cost charging point that provides both 13 amp and 32 amp high speed charging to provide a total of three charging points for a total all-in cost of £500, including installation. The idea of the charity is to offer these to businesses and organisations in order to boost the numbers of charging points around the country.
As a businessman yourself, you probably know other businesses who could potentially profit from having charging points - restaurants and pubs for instance, and you may even know people on your local council, who could be persuaded to offer charging points in return for a small (or not so small) donation to the charity. It would pay for itself in terms of free publicity they would get, if nothing else.
