The “Switched On Scotland: A Roadmap to Widespread Adoption of Plug-in Vehicles” sets out Scotland’s long-term strategy for advancing electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (EVs/PHEVs). The Roadmap introduces a new vision for Scotland that, ”by 2050, Scottish towns, cities and communities will be free from the damaging emissions of petrol and diesel fueled vehicles. A significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions will be accompanied by marked improvements in local air quality, noise pollution and public health.
To achieve the Scottish Government’s vision, Perth and Kinross Council have – in partnership with Transport Scotland, the Office for Low Emission Vehicles, and the Energy Savings Trust – installed chargers across the Perth and Kinross region. Currently, there are 30 chargers accessible to the public with ongoing installations to implement many more. Part of these ongoing installations include Electric A9 sites at Broxden Park & Ride, Auchterarder, Dunkeld & Pitlochry. These installations will be a part of Transport Scotland’s Electric A9 project providing charging infrastructure from Falkirk to Scrabster Harbour.
From the 1 January 2023, a tariff will apply to all Perth & Kinross Council chargers. For 7-22kW fast chargers the cost will be 30p per kWh with a £10 overstay fee after 4 hours and for rapid chargers the cost will be 35p per kWh with a £10 overstay fee applying after 1 hour. Motorists can pay for their electricity using their Charge Place Scotland RFID card or app. Pay as you go users can use the Charge Place Scotland webpay facility. For chargers that are located within car parks with parking charges, motorists will continue to have to pay for parking as normal when charging.
