My other option is the to buy a charger independently and have an electrician friend (OLEV approved) fit it for me and claim the grant on my behalf. Has anyone gone down that route?


not sure why this wasn't your first option?
I paid 425 all in last year (after grant which was £500 at the time) for a tethered Rolec fitted by a local olev approved electrician
Are you sure you want untethered? getting the cable out of the car all the time is a real PITA as is putting it away when wet. #firstworldproblems :)
