What are ChargePlace Scotland?
ChargePlace Scotland provides a simple and convenient way for electric vehicle drivers to travel across Scotland and access a range of charging facilities.
Where are ChargePlace Scotland?
The ChargePlace Scotland network spans the length and breadth of the country - there are currently over 2,400 publically available charge points across Scotland ranging from charging destination ‘hubs’ to dedicated spaces at supermarkets, offices and public car parks.
