Great news! An EV black spot is no more!
The Evolution Australia team were delighted to help Glen Innes Council to deploy two charging stations near their Visitor Information Centre on Church Street, Glen Innes, for the use of tourists and locals alike. The solution? An EO charger with a 22Kw EO universal EVSE plus a Tesla Charger.
The EO Universal 22kw EVSE Electric Vehicle Charger was chosen for it’s flexibility in allowing EV drivers to charge any car on the market. Simply plug and play, or connect with your own manufacturer-provided charge cable.
What we found most interesting about this EV charging project in the beautiful New England area of NSW, is that originally this installation was going to consist of Tesla only chargers. However, with a bit of extra information from us about the number of EVs hitting the market that don’t carry the T-shaped logo, Council management quickly understood that they’re not the only car manufacturer targeting the Aussie and Kiwi market. And, naturally, they wanted to cater for all EV drivers (not just those that are able to drop $120k+ on a car) hence the rather smart looking ‘Universal’ EO charger.
Environmental Officer Ian Trow from Glen Innes Severn Council said: “Electric vehicles are coming and they are coming quite quickly. We expect the uptake over the next few years will be a lot more.”
You can see the full story of their install, including comments from round-Australia-by-EV pioneer Richard McNeall in the local paper article “Telsa enthusiast says charging point ‘puts Glen Innes on the map'”.
It was a great pleasure working with such a forward-thinking Council who had the drive (pun intended) to encourage the uptake and usage of EVs in their municipality and we were particularly pleased to be able to provide important industry information to assist them in their infrastructure choices.
Like us, this Council understands that electric car ownership is on the rise and we need to look at accommodating EV owners in order to build a more sustainable and cost effective personal and commercial transport future.
If you’re looking for charging options for your local government area, we’d love to provide you with an obligation-free discussion and quote. Having worked with Councils across Australia and New Zealand, we understand that the duration between initial discussions and delivery can be extensive due to the proposal, approval and budgeting requirements of Councils, so are able to work to your timelines and expectations.
