The UK Government is halting its domestic charging station program temporarily.

That’s according to several industry insiders, who confirmed to us this morning that the OFT has requested all accredited domestic chargepoint installers halt future installations while it investigates supposed abuse of the charge point installation program, first launched last year.

Under the scheme, the UK government offers private plug-in vehicle owners up to 75 per cent of the total capital costs of purchasing and installing a domestic chargepoint for use with their electric car, up to a total value of £1,000. In return, the recipient of the charging station agrees to provide OLEV with charge point usage data automatically via a wireless 3G modem hidden in each approved charge point.
