    They were originally not persuing it, as they didn't consider it worthwhile. At that time, the OLEV rules still required usage logging - and installing a separate smartmeter alongside the WC to meet the OLEV rules wiped out most of the value of taking the grant.

    Subsequently, OLEV amended the rules to drop the logging requirement, making it sensible once again. When I last prodded Tesla (November 2016) they agreed that it was now worthwhile and were looking into it.

    Probably they could do with another prod...
