Five new RAA Charge locations come online amidst a record-breaking March

5 April, 2024

March saw the addition of five new RAA Charge electric vehicle charging sites as the month saw a record-breaking 6,371 charging sessions across the entire network.  

The new charging sites comprise of one 150kW Rapid, two 200kW Ultra-rapid and two 7Kw Destination charging stations, spanning from Mount Gambier in the south-east to Port Pirie in the mid-north.

The statewide network is now 90 per cent constructed with 460 charging points and 126 sites online and operational in South Australia.

RAA Chief Executive Officer Nick Reade said accessible public charging infrastructure is central to supporting South Aussies already driving electric vehicles and for those contemplating buying one as their next car.

“RAA is proud to play a pivotal role in opening our state’s regional routes for EV drivers.

“Since the launch of our first charging site in April last year, we’ve raised the bar in fast charging infrastructure in SA, to the point where we now have more fast chargers per registered EV than any mainland state in Australia.

“We remain committed in supporting South Aussies in the shift towards zero-emission vehicles with our charging network spanning across metro and regional towns,” said Mr. Reade.

Once complete later this year, the charging network will span across 140 locations including 54 Rapid and Ultra-rapid charging stations and more than 500 charging points across the state.

Sites delivered in March:

7kW Destination sites

  • Paxton Square Cottages, Burra
  • Monarto Safari Resort, Monarto

150kW Rapid sites

  • Bridge Terrace Carpark, Burra

200kW Ultra-rapid sites

  • Tourism and Arts Centre, Port Pirie
  • Sturt Street Carpark, Mount Gambier

RAA’s Destination chargers support the common Type 2 plug, and EV drivers need to bring their cable when charging at these long-stay and overnight charging locations.

Whereas the Rapid and Ultra-rapid charging sites feature a mix of CCS2 and CHAdeMO plugs.

EV drivers can see which chargers have both the CCS2 and CHAdeMO plugs using the Chargefox app.
