Pod Point smart charging hardware is designed to operate in tandem with grid demands. This means that in peak periods of local, regional and national electrical demand, the charging rate may be limited for brief periods to manage the energy grid. This is typically done to maintain stability of the grid and ensure reliability of supply. 

Once installed, you only pay for the electricity you use to charge. The typical electricity rate in the UK is just over 28p per kWh*, while on Economy 7 tariffs the typical overnight electricity rate in the UK is 11p per kWh. By switching to an electricity tariff designed specifically for EV drivers, you could reduce this to just 4.5p per kWh and charge your vehicle for under £5 while you sleep.
