Update on the RFID’s as we now have three !

I have been busy sending off for cards from the various power vendors this week. First to arrive was the Ecotricity, free card, free green power card complete with a very nice letter from their Founder, Dale Vince, apparently we are now empowered to ‘drive like the wind’.  Cheers Dale I love it !.

Next to arrive was the £12.50 Pod Point card that will unlock the posts at Sainsburys etc.  It looks like using it will become chargeable eventually.

Final one today the GMEV card arrived.  £10.00 for a lifetime card again nothing really about the cost to use it but I know its good at all the Charge Your Card (CYC) posts dotted all around Greater Manchester and also the North East, being the home of the Nissan EV I guess it’s logical to have lots of chargers up there.

I’ve now realised there are three separate maps to view to find a charging point. I don’t yet know if the Tekna shows all points no matter who operates them or just the ones at Nissan Garages, if you know the answer to this one please let me know.
