The Technical trial will last 18 months. For those on the latest Social trial lease, it will last 36 months.
Trial participants will lease an all-electric Nissan LEAF at a preferential monthly rate for 18 months, and they will have a charging point and the monitoring and control technology installed. The recharging of the vehicle will be monitored, and if required, controlled, by the installed technology. Trial participants will need to provide information about their experience on the trial as requested by the project, and be willing to take part in promoting the project.
Phase 1 – months 0-6
For the first six months of the project (12 March 2013 – 11 September 2013) the trial will only take place in certain geographical locations: Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution Limited (SSEPD) network areas in Central Southern England and the North of Scotland (view map or check your postcode).
Phase 2 – months 4-6
From (12 June 2013 – 11 September 2013) the trial will be open to Northern Powergrid licence areas in North East England, Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire (view map or check your postcode).
Phase 3 – months 7-12
From (12 September 2013 – 11 March 2014), the trial has the option of broadening out to the rest of Britain if sufficient clusters aren’t gained in the first six months. This would be primarily focused on residential clusters, but business clusters would also be eligible to apply.
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.
