Electric Vehicle Tariffs

Amendments to Overstay Charges

Please note all overstay fees will be capped at £60 per transaction, for any users who has incurred a fee above £60 the excess will be refunded to your account.  As a one off goodwill gesture, any cumulative overstay fees incurred between 1st July and 30th September will be capped at £180, any fees in excess of this will also be refunded to your account.

We are currently looking at ways to remove the overstay fee on fast (22kW) units overnight (between 10pm and 8am), however ChargePlace Scotland do not have a system that enables them to do this at present.  Until this can be implemented, users will still need to ensure all vehicles are removed from charge after 4 hours.
Overstay Charges

Please note all the information on overstay charges are available in the table below.  No refunds will be issued with failure to comply with the time limits set for each chargers use.  Users need to be aware that the overstay time limit applies to the unit and not the cable in use.  Therefore if using the AC cable on a rapid charger the tariff rate and overstay limit of 1 hour will apply.  If your vehicle cannot fully charge on the unit being used within the time limit set, the vehicle will require to be removed from charge or the overstay fee will be applied.

The Council introduced a tariff for the use of the electric vehicle charging infrastructure on Saturday 1 July 2023.

A tariff stucture was approved by Council on Thursday 18 May 2023.  The Clackmannanshire tariff is based on no further financial subsidy from the Council and therefore is set higher than some adjacent local authorities, where tariffs remain subsidised.

Tariff Rates

Charger Type Cost per kWh Minimum Charge Overstay Fee Overstay fee chargeable after every
Standard Charger (7kW) £0.48 £5.00 £0.00 not applicable
Fast Charger (22kW) £0.48 £5.00 £12.00

4 hours

Rapid Charger * (43-50kW) £0.69 £5.00 £20.00

60 minutes

* please note that any 22kW AC connector on a Rapid Charger will be subject to the rapid charger tariff and any overstay fees/time limits.

The tariff introduced will allow us to cover the operating costs of the EV chargepoint network. 

These costs include

  • electricity (both direct and indirect costs)
  • maintenance and warranty
  • repairs
  • back office charges
  • bay markings
  • replacement of older units that are no longer operational
  • expansion of the current network

Overstay fee

An overstay fee will be applied to both fast and rapid chargers to ensure that there is a turnover of users created and all users can get access to the chargers.  A 10 minute grace period will be provided.  No refunds will be given for any overstay fees incurred.  The maximum overstay that will be applied per transaction is £60. 

No overstay fee is proposed on destination chargers (7kW) however, as a matter of courtesy, we would encourage users to vacate the charging bay as soon as possible after charging is complete to allow other users to access the charger.  This will be kept under review and if bay 'hogging' is observed an overstay for destination chargers may be considered in the future.

Residents Discount

Clackmannanshire residents without access to off-street parking for example garage or driveway, will be able to apply for a reduced tariff of 10% per kWh.  Residents with access to off-street parking are not eligible for the discount.  More information can be found on our Residents Discount Scheme page. 

For residents without access to off-street parking, but who are interested in installing a driveway to enable at home charging, you will require to apply for a footway crossing.
