Yes, you can charge how and where you wish, the EVs should be used with absolutely no consideration for the Esprit Technology. The vast majority of home charging points throughout the UK are compatible with the Nissan LEAF. Public charging points generally have a 'Type 2' socket - which means that a different cable is required. We can help you source a Type 2 cable, but you will need to pay for this yourself.
Charger cable length is around 5 metres. The charging point needs to be as close to the car as possible to avoid trailing leads.
You will not need to pay for the installation, or removal of your charging point, and you can even choose to keep the charging point at the end of the project.
If you want to use the public charging infrastructure to charge your vehicle then you may need to pay a fee for this. There are various schemes in operation around the UK, some are free to use but require a subscription fee, others require you to pay per charge.
The control equipment will only be connected to your charging point and will only monitor the supply to the charging unit.
The are a number of sources of information about the location of charging points, such as:

The My Electric Avenue Project was delivered between January 2013 and December 2015 by EA Technology on behalf of Scottish and Southern Energy Networks (SSEN) as part of the Low Carbon Networks (LCN) Fund suite of innovation projects. As the Project is now complete, this webpage will no longer be updated, however you can learn more about the work undertaken by EA Technology at www.eatechnology.com and SSEN at www.ssepd.co.uk/Home.
