Look for the Dakota hotel near Coatbridge just outside Glasgow (off the M8 on the way to Edinburgh) - loads of superchargers, duck in for a cuppa then back onto the sliproad to head for the M74 if you want to go that way back down the road.

Please donít shoot me down Iím genuinely interested as a villa owner
1 how much do you Telsa owners think it would cost to charge overa two week period
Florida electricity is very very expensive
2 would a charging point influence your choice of villa
3 would you be happy to pay a reduced nightly rental with a set amount of electricity use and anything over taken from an increased security deposit or a increased daily pool heat / electric car hire charge
Iím only asking as electric is our biggest utility bill Ac and pool heat going really really bump it up
Yes I know dibbers would be honest send charge at paid points but some guests wonít
I envisage all my paid for air going right out the door so folk can charge cars and worse
Just being honest here

Costs me about £11 to fully charge my iPace. Moving to Octopus who offer electric at 5p per kwh for 4 hours during the night (electric is about 15 / 16p kwh at the moment I think) so will set to charge up during the cheap period.

As the rental companies aren't widely offering EV's, I don't think there would be much of a benefit to UK customers at the moment, but maybe US customers?

I've had quite a few enquiries from customers specifically looking to drive Teslas and other EV's as a way to get an extended test drive and decide if they're going to get one back home, so as EV's come online from the rental companies, I'd say it'll influence customers decisions... They'll feel happier charging at 'home' as opposed to having to sit at a charge point for a little while.

You can get smart chargers that show how much Electric was used during the charge so I'd be happy for that to be taken from the security deposit.

Thanks Andy
Iím sure everyone can appreciate that not all of our villas are occupied all the time so security of our utilities are important
We e twice had builders trades men use our electric/ water had to take threaten to take onecto court for $1000s
Iím just interested going forward as I didnít take up the great offer to change my city car to a electric version as the odd occasion weíd need to us3 2 cars to go a long trip Iíd Centre Parcs in 10 days we could not get an answer re charging

Or smiling as a lot had solar panels and power banks fitted when the feed in tariff was better than having an isa
