Regional EV Charging Network
A network of more than 20 electric vehicle (EV) chargers across 17 sites is being rolled out in 2021, linking towns throughout the Loddon Mallee region to benefit local communities, local economies, and the climate by reducing greenhouse emissions.
“The network will ensure that regional Victoria doesn’t get left behind as more electric cars hit the road,” says Rob Law, executive officer of the Central Victorian Greenhouse Alliance, which is driving the initiative in partnership with the Victorian Government and 12 local councils.
“It will boost jobs, stimulate EV tourism and encourage people to think about ‘going electric’ on their next vehicle purchase.”
It’s a win for EV drivers, too, with the network promising a seamless connection experience. Each site will be capable of giving up to 50kW of charge – providing a 200km range in just 45 minutes – with no more than 50–100km between charging stations.
