ChargePlace Scotland is a national network of electric vehicle charge points available across Scotland. The ChargePlace Scotland network has been developed by the Scottish Government through grant funding of Local Authorities and other organisations to install publicly available charge points. Recipients of the funding are known as 'Hosts'. A Host is the designated owner of the charge points they have installed and are also responsible for maintenance and general upkeep of their charge points. The ChargePlace Scotland network is operated on behalf of the Scottish Government by Charge Your Car Ltd.
ChargePlace Scotland provides a simple and convenient way for EV drivers to travel across Scotland with access to a range of charging facilities. Drivers can access charging through the use of a ChargePlace Scotland Access Card or online at www.chargeplacescotland.org. To register for the network, you will need to provide some basic details along with your bank details. Please click on the 'Join us' tab above for more information, or call the ChargePlace Scotland Customer Helpdesk on 0141 648 0750.
Register online with ChargePlace Scotland (CPS) by filling-in the driver sign-up form. Once this is complete, you can sign-in to your CPS portal and also use the same details to sign-in to the CPS mobile website.
Before you can order and use an Access Card you will need to sign-in to your CPS portal to register your bank details for charging session pre-authorisation. If you register via the website, this will be in the form of a direct debit. If you register via the ChargeYourCar app, this will be in the form of debit or credit card details.
Once you have registered and added a payment method, you can order an RFID Access Card, allowing you to access all CPS charge points. Initial cost = £20 per annum.
You are now ready to start using the CPS network. If you need any assistance when charging call our Helpline on 0141 648 0750.
ChargePlace Scotland operates by providing a single national charge point management system to which charge point owners can connect charge points, making the posts visible to all Electric Vehicle drivers via the ChargePlace Scotland live status map. ChargePlace Scotland enables charge point owners to set the tariff for each charge point, collect payment for usage, and provides alerts in the event of a fault.
