Interesting that you have an electric car. Do you find there is sometimes a queue at Tebay? Anyway, I Googled Tebay, and see there is a BP Chargemaster point there. Looking at the photos, it would appear that you need to log on to a URL. See photo. Do you have to log on at the time you want to charge, or do you just use the BP card which is also mentioned? If it IS necessary to log on, sorry but that gets right up my nose - yet another example of the assumption that everyone has a smart phone! There are current statistics which show that 16% of the UK adult population do not own a smart phone. That works out at around 8 million people. Including myself! (How do I fly my drone without a smart phone? - I have a Fimi A3).
There was a clip on The One Show a couple of weeks ago where the BBC reporter struggled when doing a piece on electric cars - he had to download an app before he could go ahead. How ridiculous - what happens if your phone battery also needs recharging? Or the phone is not working, or there is no signal. Surely far more sensible, as with many 24 hour self service filling stations, to be able to use a debit or credit card which are virtually universal for anyone who has a Bank account. I suspect far more than 84% of car owners have one. They are universally accepted with no brand loyalty needed! Simply pay per KWh. I certainly won’t be getting an electric car until that is the case.
