Falkirk council has installed electric vehicle charging points at its seven main offices to cater for business journeys undertaken by its fleet of EVs.

Charging specialist Elektromotive also fitted a fast-charge unit at the council’s Dalgrain depot, which is capable of providing an EV with 80% of its charge in 20 minutes.

John Paterson, head of operational services, said: “A key priority was ensuring we had a robust, well-proven re-charging network in place for the new EV fleet to be used on demand by staff to travel between our main offices.

“One concern was having vehicles reach their destination without enough charge to return, leaving it out of action for potentially many hours.

“The installation of this network means that staff can make these journeys in the comfort that they will always have sufficient charge.”
