ev charging point, Merchant City 02

Electric Vehicle charging points in the Merchant City section of Glasgow. From what I could read on the actual charging point this is a free service to encourage more use of electric vehicles in the city - it says you buy a special card for a one off cost and after that you can use it to plug your EV into these spots and leave it to charge while parked. Handy and good idea given the limited charge time on most electric cars at the moment. Not ideal transport for long distance, maybe, but if yo are just darting around in a city I can see them being a good idea, especially if that city lays on charging points like this.
