Edinburgh to begin charging for EV charge points

Costs for using electric vehicle chargers owned and provided by the City of Edinburgh Council will be introduced on Sunday 1 May.

Charges, which will be displayed at existing charging points, were agreed as part of the budget-setting process earlier this year.

The Council says any revenue generated will be used to fund the ongoing costs associated with its electric vehicle charging infrastructure. In March it began work to introduce 81 chargers (141 bays) in residential streets and park and ride sites around the city, which will be available for use by summer (Pictured). The roll-out is being funded by £2.3 million awarded through Transport Scotland’s Switched on Towns and Cities Challenge Fund.

Charges and maximum stay periods depend on the type of charger with full details available on the Council website.
