If a participant leaves, or is asked to leave, before the end of the trial in June 2022 then they will be asked to reimburse a proportion of the installation fee paid on their behalf by the project. The exact amount will be calculated in a tiered format according to the length of time that they participated in the trial, however this could be up to £2000:

The project will pay for the installation of the V2G charger (this usually costs up to £1,000) assuming your property falls into the standard installation criteria. This includes:
If any additional work is required to allow for the installation of the V2G charger, we will ask you to cover the additional cost of this. CrowdCharge will also review the extra cost issued by the installer. The installer will inform you of this additional cost upfront for your acceptance.
More information on this is detailed under the FAQ ‘Will I have to pay for installation?’.
The recommended retail price (RRP) of the V2G charger is estimated to be £5,500. The project V2G charger is free to use for the duration of the trial, concluding in March 2022. If you would then like to keep the project hardware after the trial ends, you are able to have the ownership transferred to you for a small transfer fee as detailed in the Project Exit fees.
The trial ends in June 2022. You would be expected to participate until the end of the trial. If you leave before the end of the trial, you will be asked to pay an early exit fee and the charger will be uninstalled. The exact amount will be calculated according to the length of time that you participated in the trial and is outlined in the exit fees.
If you move to a new house during the trial, then you can take your charger with you although you will have to pay for CrowdCharge’s V2G-approved installer to move it otherwise this will affect the charger’s warranty. You can then continue to participate in the trial. However, you must check that you are still within the project’s location limits of the WPD area; this includes the Midlands, South Wales and the South West.
Please let CrowdCharge know if you are moving to a new house so that it can keep its records up to date. CrowdCharge will also be able to help you find a qualified installer to move your charge point. Any incurred costs during this process will be solely down to the participant.
If you move before the end of the trial and you will not be continuing participation in the trial, then you are required to let CrowdCharge know and you will be asked to pay an early exit fee. The exact amount will be calculated on a case-by-case basis according to the length of time that you participated in the trial and is outlined in the exit fees.
To participate in the trial, you’ll need to satisfy the below requirements:
When you become a participant in the Electric Nation Vehicle to Grid trial, to remain eligible you’ll need to make sure the V2G charger is the main method of charging your EV. If it’s not, then CrowdCharge has the right to remove the charger, and your participation will be terminated.
If a participant leaves before the end of the trial in June 2022 a trial exit fee is applicable. The exact amount will be calculated according to the length of time that you participated in the trial, however this could be an exit fee of up to £2,000 and the charger will be removed.
