Re: No more skulking :-)

Welcome! I have a 24kwh Leaf (2013 plate, bought for £10k in 2015) and I'd respectfully add a counterpoint to Scally; if you are on a budget then a decent 24kwh Leaf costing about £7k at today's prices is a far more realistic prospect than a 30-40kwh car which costs twice as much. If you are able to...

Re: Preferential EV Insurance Rates

Thanks very much. I have just renewed mine last month but will bear this in mind for the future.

Re: Electric ferries - why not?

The concept of pure plug-in ferries is probably restricted at present to those on inland waterways or inter-island in sheltered locations with low tidal range. I could see an electric passenger launch service working quite well along the Clyde, on the F&C canal, or across Loch Lomond, for examp...

Re: Facebook

Scally is suggesting that EVAS requires 5,000 x £30 = £150,000 per year to give it a good chance of achieving its aims. Given the sheer unlikelihood of getting this just now, should EVAS bid for some sort of start-up funding to generate a 5 figure or small 6 figure sum towards scaling it up? Has thi...

Re: Switched On Scotland refresh

I agree that the document, at a glance, is underwhelming. It gives very few specific commitments in terms of overall budget and spending plan, targets (eg number of chargers to be installed) and strategy (eg charging for charging, workplaces, destinations, tourism).

Re: Work charging - making it easier

I work in a shared NHSGGC / social work building which also hosts three GP practices. Council employees including me, and GP practices, have spent years asking NHSGGC management to give us access to the small, underused NHSGGC employees' gym within the building, which is usually empty. We pushed the...

Re: Facebook

There is also a lot to be said for a controlled access group (option B) as this is an effective way to prevent all-out trolling. But there should be the facility to make specific posts/discussions public as this may inspire wider contributions, a livelier page and ultimately raise awareness of EV is...

Re: Running for office: and Green motoring

I'm sorry you and other Greens weren't successful Scally.

Perhaps if you displayed overt racism, droned on about binding referendums and spoke about the SNP in much the same breath as Al Quaida, you'd have succeeded.

National newspaper

Hi folks I have an acquaintance who is involved in editorial duties at the National newspaper. To be blunt, the National is a relatively low-circulation newspaper that is always on the hunt for cheap journalism, eg columns written by unpaid bloggers, activists etc. I hear through the grapevine that ...
