Dundee City Council given £22k for new EV charging points


Transport for Scotland has awarded Dundee City Council a £22,000 grant to install two new 22kW fast charging points.

The new public electric vehicle (EV) charging stations are proposed to be located at Whitfield Life Services Centre and the West Housing Office.

Environment convener Craig Melville said: “This is another important step in our commitment to environmentally-friendly transport.

“These additional charging points will help us to keep up the momentum for electric cars in Dundee by making them even more accessible.

“An increase in the usage of electric vehicles helps combat poor air quality issues across the city, which is beneficial to everyone.

“Hopefully more people will now be encouraged to go green and make the switch to electric vehicles.”

Dundee’s environment committee will meet on Monday to approve the planned locations and also discuss replacing seven diesel fleet cars with electric vehicles.
