Perth & Kinross Council EV Projects

We are continually working towards the Government’s vision to free Scotland from harmful emissions arising from petrol and diesel fueled vehicles, by increasing convenience of accessibility and availability of chargers, and promoting the use of electric cars and other modes of zero emission transports.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.Our units are currently free to use and are accessed through Chargeplace Scotland using an RFID card, mobile phone app or by telephone. To report a fault, or speak to a Chargeplace Scotland advisor, please contact 0141 648 0750. Contact details and chargepoint ID numbers are displayed clearly on all units.

Grant Funding & Incentives

There are some grants and incentives available for charging infrastructure to be installed at home and for businesses. Please visit Energy Savings Trust for more information.
