Accessing charge points in Scotland is becoming easier every day, with new infrastructure being funded and developed to support Electric Vehicle drivers.
The ChargePlace Scotland network has grown from 55 charge points in 2013, to over 1,500 charge points in 2020. These charge points are installed across Scotland from Shetland to the Scottish Borders, with many being available to use for free following payment of a £20 annual membership fee. New charge points are installed regularly on the network, and are announced on the ChargePlace Scotland Twitter and Facebook pages.
As with any new technology, the infrastructure continues to develop and improve all the time, with newer and more sophisticated charging solutions being introduced on a regular basis. In addition to new charging hubs being built, some 150kW units will be made available on the ChargePlace Scotland network to enable members to benefit from ultra-fast charging.
