Just wondering if anybody could point me in the direction of some facts about the cost of a charge for a Twizy. Basically I work for the Fire Service and have used my Twizy a few times to commute. There are plenty of waterproof external 3 pin (UK) sockets available externally so I thought I would ask the question to management about the possibility of plugging in occasionally if needed. I don’t think there will be a massive amount of opposition to it, but I just wanted to make sure I have the blessing of the organisation.
I have claimed the amount of electricity required to charge from empty is approximately 60 pence. However, I have not got anything to back this up. Are there any sources out there that can back this claim up? I guess there must be some way of working it out technically, but this would have to be linked into the cost per unit of electricity at the time.
On a similar note, and after talking to the operational manager in charge of Transport, he has agreed that there is going to be more of a focus on having to provide regular hook up points for EVs in the service. I live in Derby and there is a push for a green zone, something that I think will be appearing in most of the large cities in the developed world. They are installing EHUs in the city center station for a fleet of three electric vehicles which will be owned by our service to ensure operations within the city. All good stuff in my eyes. However, for me with my 3 pin plug, no additional financial outlay to provide a hook up solution, and the right information as proof, I am hoping i will have the blessing of the service to charge at work.
Any help much appreciated
