Re: Home charger installation

Yes, Scottish Power would have to do it. On a single phase supply, having an electric hob on, electric shower and car charger can quickly use up the available power. Uprating may be the best option. Can't remember cost but I don't think it was too excessive. Not disagreeing for any other reason tha...

Re: Public Charging Problems Log

So Shawfair P+R (aka Sherrifhall) situated just off end of Edinburgh city bypass, has 2 x rapid and 2 x T2 posts. I have been charging fine on either rapid for over a year, and they are super reliable to date and have never gone down or had faults as far as I am aware. Sooooooo… last week I plugged ...

Re: HIYDIHO

I don't mince my words with PHEV's either, not sure I have met anyone who is as anti PHEV as I am to be honest. But important to be realistic here, your going to have to get used to it I am afraid. I don't know what the ratio of PHEV's to BEV's is like in Inverness, but it is pretty much an issue fo...

Re: Forthcoming Meeting with Transport Scotland

Planning and building a national network is the second major item which I think needs to be addressed. I have had a CYC-CPS card for over 5 years now. Surely in 5 years or more of their being a CPS network some one could have sat down and written a plan. I really struggle to understand why Scotland...

Re: Forthcoming Meeting with Transport Scotland

1. Get PHEV's of the rapid network. Possibly, but just charge rapids at 30p/kwh and that more or less achieves your objective, never actually experienced PHEV issue myself outside shopping centres. Different types of vehicles require different types of fueling. You don't have HGV's fueling up besid...

Re: Forthcoming Meeting with Transport Scotland

Apart from wanting everything fixed and forever free, what positive ideas do you have ? 1. Get PHEV's of the rapid network. 2. Needs a road law or whatever law remit it falls under for any charging fees incurred, must be displayed at the charger. 3. Network needs more double Rapid facilities, and a...

Re: Forthcoming Meeting with Transport Scotland

Thank you for the clarification Martin, very interesting! Great news as assumed for the CYC coffers and profits column on their spreadsheet. Scotland is so not ready for this as a whole if this happens, even if only a connection fee basis. What an utter mess of a shambles we are in right now. It loo...

Re: Forthcoming Meeting with Transport Scotland

I have to agree it does not sound good. The charging provision for the majority of the country is shabby in many, many ways (not just about if the equipment is working or not), and it really is not worth that much at all. Is the 4.5% transaction fee a card fee to cover costs associated to VISA, Mast...

Re: Octopus Go EV tariff

Don't know of them but heard of the name. Sounds like they are trying to rival Bulb with the £50 referral scheme? So if your 5p a kWh, what time of evening does that rate start/finish? And what is the standard day time rate if you know? I have a Zappi also, but even with 10kW of PV, there are 3-4 mo...
