Re: Forthcoming Meeting with Transport Scotland

Starting to charge for the majority of the existing CPS network which is run by councils would give commercial operators a chance to step in an install their own chargers. They would likely charge 30-35p per kWh based on the prices in England and Wales. If Scottish Politicians want to provide subsid...

Re: Public Charging Problems Log

Friday 18th January 2019 the rapid charger in St Margarets Hope, Orkney would not accept cards both mine and another person who initially reported it. On Saturday 19th January the charger worked fine for both of us. The other person had been able to charge with the charger started and stopped by CPS...

Re: Forthcoming Meeting with Transport Scotland

Perhaps I wasn't very clear and I think I made a slight error in the calculation anyway. For a £1 fee. The first call on the £1 is tax 16.67p (20% VAT) This leaves 83.33p. Chargemaster, or CYC or CPS effectively all the same then take a fixed 36p connection fee and a 4.5% of the transaction value fe...

Re: Forthcoming Meeting with Transport Scotland

Found out in recent discussions with Orkney Council that the reason that they want to have a connection charge is that is what has been negotiated between the Scottish Government and the operators of Charge Place Scotland, 36p for each connection pre VAT so 43.2p plus a fee of 4.5% of the transactio...

Re: Public Charging Problems Log

Is this the right place to record the failure to connect to validation server errors for the eVolt chargers. I noticed that there was a request to log it elsewhere as well as on face book?

Re: Forthcoming Meeting with Transport Scotland

Tongue in cheek but we already have short range utility electric vehicles with a roof. They even come in three different flavours, ion cZero and iMiEV. Our family have one, along with a 4 wheel drive Outlander PHEV for towing and an BMW i3 REX for our long trips. While each car has a nominal owner-d...

Re: Pointless Chargers at ARI in Aberdeen!

Card arrived and payment details set up though not yet tested. If it bills in Euros the card should still pay it provided that the organisation requesting the payment is in a country which use Euros. I've purchased things from Europe in Euros before on my card and had them posted to my home address....

Re: Pointless Chargers at ARI in Aberdeen!

Successfully applied for a new motion card to be sent to my home. It says second part of registration to be completed when card arrives. Presumably this will include setting up payment details. ARI would have been very useful to charge at when I had to visit back in summer 2017 and I might very well...

Re: Pointless Chargers at ARI in Aberdeen!

The new patient car park at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary now has 3 double-type-2 chargers available. They are powered on and not in use. In fact they will probably never be used as they are not on CPS - they are on the Dutch "Ecotap" network. There a notice saying that you can sign up with th...

Re: Forthcoming Meeting with Transport Scotland

I believe the meeting has been held now. Do we get to see the agenda and minutes of the meeting? Were any of the points raised above successfully put across to TS by EVAS? How are changes made by TS going to be monitored? I think my biggest immediate concern for which I hopped for a positive answer ...
