Scottish energy giant launches new tariff to re-charge battery powered vehicles (BPVs)

A Scottish utility has launched its first tariff for customers who charge their electric vehicles at home.

And to help customers locate their nearest charging point when away from home, Scottish Power has also introduced a new BPV-charger finder  ‘app’ for mobile phones.

Neil Clitheroe, head of the utility’s Retail Division, said: “All analysis shows that the shift to battery-powered vehicles (BPVs) will gather serious pace in the coming years, and customers quite rightly expect bespoke services to support them in their journey to electric.

“Our growing focus on BPV services and bespoke tariffs reflects changes in the energy retail market, as we modernise and digitise the hardware and software that supports our customers.”
