Published on Wednesday 24 May 2023

The price will go up from 23p per kWh to 41p per kWh on all publicly owned slow, fast and rapid chargers.

Price increase for EV charging

The increase is necessary to ensure the EV charging network can be maintained and continue to be accessible and financially sustainable. It will also enable continued investment in line with the growth of the network and the price is comparable with tariffs applied by private sector providers in Angus.

Notices will be in place at every publicly owned charging point in Angus to advise of the change in cost.

Details are also available on the ChargePlace Scotland website, along with information about locations and instructions how to use charging points.

The increase in EV charging cost was agreed by Angus Council at their meeting on 2 March 2023 as part of setting the 2023/24 budget.

It also follows the Scottish Futures Trust Insights Report on public EV charging tariffs in Scotland. It recommends that local authorities should levy tariffs that cover all direct and indirect costs (including asset replacement) so they broadly align with the market rate tariff charged by the private sector.
