The technology

The charging point

Home charging points were available for home owners who were taking part in the trial, ensuring that everyone had the convenience of being able to charge their Nissan LEAF at home. The home charge points were wall mounted. The unit was robust enough to be mounted on an external wall, as well as internal walls inside garages and car ports.

The ‘technology’

The technology, installed as part of the project, monitored and controlled the demand from charging points on the local electricity network. The item of equipment in the home was a small black box and was installed at the same time as the charging point.

At the end of the trial

When the trial ends participants have the option to keep the charger (at no cost), and also the car - either through ongoing leasing or outright purchase.

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 and SSEN at
