Stirling Council begins electric vehicle pilot
The cars will be used by the Council’s Environmental Services team for urban and suburban trips as part of measures to cut carbon emissions, cost and energy usage. A fast charging unit has been installed at its deput in Springkerse.
Cllr. Jim Thomson, Stirling Council portfolio holder with responsibility for the environment, said: ‘The Citroën electric cars tie-in with the Scottish Government's legislation on climate change and provide added benefits with zero emissions, while also saving the council money as they are cheaper to run than a normal petrol car – a definite win, win situation.’
