Scotland set for charging point revolution

Energy giant SSE has today confirmed that households across Scotland will be offered the chance to have charging points installed free of charge. The company is also targeting leisure centres, council car parks and ferry terminals in what many believe will be the growth sector of the future.

The idea is that the £2.6 million being invested by SSE will see electric car drivers no more than 50 miles from a charging point on any of Scotland’s trunk roads. This would be a major step forward in the race to increase the number of charging points across the UK, and indeed across the world, and it will be interesting to see if the offer is taken up.
