EV Chargers - Supply & Installation Across Scotland

Over recent years there has been an influx in the manufacturing of electric vehicles across the globe. The ongoing climate crisis and increase in the cost of fossil fuels has led to a massive shift in priorities for several tech and automation giants. The movement has therefore adjusted public views on renewable energy, forcing them to consider their role in this new era – enter electric vehicles. The number of people switching to electric cars means access to EV chargers, whether at home, at work, and at service stations or rest stops.

The team at CM Gates & Barriers have partnered with CITA EV to supply and install suitable EV solutions for customers across Scotland. Whether it be a commercial project, or small residential upgrade, we’re here to help you take the next step towards reducing your carbon footprint.

Residential EV Chargers

Most vehicles are parked at home, overnight, therefore most electric car owners rely on home charging to ensure that their EV is ready for use every morning. As well as being convenient, home-based overnight charging also has the advantage of being, in most cases, the cheapest time to recharge.

Workplace Charging Scheme

The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) is a grant that businesses can use to reduce the cost of installing electric vehicle charge points for their staff by up to £14,000. This grant is also offered by the OZEV.

Workplace charging is a great way to encourage your staff to adopt electric vehicles. Research shows that having an available charger at your workplace makes drivers six times more likely to switch to an electric car.

How Long Does It Take to Charge an Electric Car?

EV Chargers can take anywhere between 30-60 minutes and 8-10 hours. The time it takes to charge your electric car depends on the car’s battery size, the number of miles you do between charges, your charging behaviour, and the power rating of the charger you’re using. There are three main types of chargers:
