ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING POLICY
About this policy
This policy sets out how Electric Vehicles (EV) should be recharged while at the Property and the responsibilities of EV owners in respect of safe charging.
Any reference to “Property” in this policy is a reference to the Property including any garden, grounds, outbuildings, garages. This policy forms part of our contract with you. A breach of this policy will constitute a breach of the contract between us.
Who does this policy apply to? This policy applies to all members of the Booking Party. No one who is not booked into the property can use the EV Chargers at the Property. It shall be the responsibility of the Lead Guest to inform all members of the Booking Party and any visitors of this policy.
What is an Electric Vehicle?
For the purpose of this policy an EV is any vehicle that uses electric motors, either fully or partially, to drive its wheels. It will derive some or all its power from rechargeable batteries which requires connection to the electricity grid (plug-in). This includes fully chargeable and plug-in hybrid cars, motorbikes, buggies, scooters, mopeds, bicycles, utility vehicles and tracked vehicles.
Domestic chargers are not permitted at the Property
Most EVs are supplied with a domestic charger, commonly known as a ‘granny charger’ or a ‘trickle charger’. These cables recharge the EV using a domestic power source via a 3-pin wall socket.
Domestic chargers are not suitable for use in the Property and will create a fire hazard. The use of domestic chargers is strictly forbidden. We retain the right to carry out reasonable inspection, on a without notice basis, to ensure that granny chargers are not in use in the Property. You are solely liable for any damage or loss suffered by us as a result of your unauthorised use of domestic chargers.
Dedicated charging point
The Property has a dedicated charge point (DCP) located outside the garage. One car at a time can be charging.
DCPs are exclusively for the use of the Booking Party, visitors to the Property who do not comprise the Booking Party are not permitted to use the facilities without our express permission.
DCPs are subject to energy consumption charges: charges will be dependant on up to date electricity prices from our supplier.
You must not:
(a) use a DCP if you are not authorised to do so;
(b) use any splitting cables or modify the DCP in any way;
(c) smoke in the vicinity of any DCP;
We do not guarantee the availability of a DCP and unavailability of the DCP shall not constitute a breach of our Guest Terms.
Authorisation for the use of a DCP during your Stay must be made prior to Booking. We reserve the right to withdraw this authority at any time and for any reason.
Use of the DCP is at the owner’s own risk and we do not accept any liability for loss or damage sustained by you or your EV as a result of using the DCP unless the damage was caused directly by our negligence.
You shall be responsible to us for any damage to the DCP or loss suffered by us caused by your use of the DCP.
