Price increase for charging Electric Vehicles

Thursday 21 March, 2024

The price of charging an electric vehicle at charging points maintained by Angus Council will increase from Monday 1 April 2024.

The price will go up to 55p per kWh on all slow, fast and rapid chargers. 

In addition, in order to have sufficient turnover and fair usage of our chargers we have decided to impose an overstay charge of £10 on all our chargers as per the following:


  • For 7kW slow chargers, the typical charging time is 7-8 hours approximately, therefore after 8 hours, an overstay charge would be implemented,
  • For 22kW fast chargers, the typical charging time is 2-3 hours approximately, therefore after 3 hours, an overstay penalty charge would be implemented and,
  • For 50kW rapid chargers, the typical charging time is 1 hour approximately, therefore after 1 hour, an overstay penalty charge would be implemented.


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 the network of charging points and the price is comparable with tariffs applied by private sector providers in Angus.

Notices are 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.
