Victoria to almost triple the number of public electric car chargers
The Victorian Government will install 214 new electric vehicle (EV) chargers across the state.
The $2.2 million investment into the state’s Zero Emissions Vehicle Technologies (ZEVET) program will cover four projects and see it work with charging providers JET Charge, Intellihub and Myenergi.
The state government hasn’t provided a timeframe.
The new chargers will be a combination of fixed and portable units, and will supplement the 116 chargers the state is already rolling out.
The four portable units, developed by JET Charge, can be temporarily installed at popular summer destinations to combat EV charging delays while away from home.
The first portable charger will be deployed to the RACV Goldfields Resort in Ballarat.
A range of chargers will also be deployed at public and private sites within metro Melbourne.
Jet Charge’s EV Charging Central – Apartments and Building project will allow 10 EV charging outlets to be located in an apartment car park and commercial shared car space, enabling easy accessibility for fleet users in metropolitan Melbourne.
100 EV chargers will be mounted to street light poles withi
