An overstay fee of £1 per minute, charged once a driver is over 15 minutes late returning to their car, is also proposed.
£200,000 sounds like a low price to pay for cleaner air in Hope StreetAn overstay fee of £1 per minute, charged once a driver is over 15 minutes late returning to their car, is also proposed.www.glasgowlive.co.uk
I think having to park somewhere you didn't really want to park, in order to get a charge, is a different case though. You're already paying a higher kWh price than people with driveways.EV drivers are of course entitled to freebies thats their God given right.
No, you wouldn't but I guess it was necessary to kick start EVs. Also, certainly in my region, Council EVs, and there is a lot of them, were very heavy users of the free ChargePoints, often being worst at leaving them on rapids/fast chargers all weekend.You wouldn't expect councils to pay for your Petrol or Diesel and still at a reasonable price 0.20p/KW for a rapid charge
Given the figured shared, it looks like the programme cost the council £0.47/kWh over the last year, of which, £0.14/kWh for the actual electricity. But excludes any capital or installation costs.You wouldn't expect councils to pay for your Petrol or Diesel and still at a reasonable price 0.20p/KW for a rapid charge
This also means more charger availability for someone needing a charge, and the overstay penalty is also a big help in this respect.It may also be counter productive....
Near where I live, there is a Pod Point that WAS completely free. As you can imagine, very popular with a lot of electric cars - in March it changed and it’s now 30p per kWh - in the last 2 months I haven’t seen one single car use it......
Be interesting to see what happens to useage now they charge for it.
