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: 75% of Rapids down in East Lothian

Re: 75% of Rapids down in East Lothian

Chunky, I don't know about Ikea not been there for a while, but the previous times the charger has never been in use, and the charging spaces have commonly been used as near front door parking spaces, mainly by big PHEV's. Best charging option is Straiton Park & Ride which you will pass on the w...

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: Shell Recharge

Not exactly a common sight, never seen anyone use one before or mention it. Not the worst concept either, I would prefer that to a RFID card or in addition to a RFID card.

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...
