She’s Electric

PowerPod in Blackheath for electric car charging

There’s a mysterious addition to the car park. Looming at the back, near the payment machine, is a PodPoint. Despite looking like a Cylon, it’s actually a docking point for electric vehicles. The scheme costs £50 to join, but the electricity is free (at the moment).

Much like the BorisBikes, there is a live map, showing whether the points are available, in use, or broken:

Unlike the BorisBikes, there’s actually one in Blackheath! So, my question is – has anyone used one? Does anyone in Blackheath own an electric car? How is it?
