Electric Vehicle Tariffs

Electric Vehicle Tariffs

Tariff increase on 1 April 2024: Please note all tariffs increased by 6.7% on 1 April, as agreed by Clackmannanshire Council as part of the budget. A slight adjustment has followed on 1st May 2024.

There will be no increase to overstay fees, which will remain at £12 for 22kW/fast chargers after each 4 hour period and £20 at rapid chargers after each 60 minute period. The £5 minimum fee will also remain unchanged.

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.

* 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.
