A whopping twenty-six new electric vehicle charging sites came online in November, marking one of the largest construction months in the rollout of the RAA Charge network since construction began in December last year.
The new charging sites comprise of nine 7kW Destination, thirteen 150kW Rapid and four 200kW Ultra-Rapid charging stations, spanning from Marla in the north-west to Naracoorte in the south-east.
New sites delivered in November:
7kW Destination sites
150kW Rapid sites
200kW Ultra-Rapid sites
RAA Chief Executive Officer Nick Reade said the addition of these new sites will ensure EV drivers can discover the finest attractions our state has to offer, with at least 75% of charging sites located in regional SA.
“Once complete in 2024, the charging network will cover 140 locations with over 530 charging points, with 98% if them less than 200 km apart, making range anxiety a thing of the past for EV drivers.
The addition of these new sites brings the overall count of operational and publicly accessible charging locations to 104.
The Destination chargers support the common Type 2 plug, and EV drivers need to bring their own cable when charging at these long stay and overnight charging locations.
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.
The RAA Charge network is being rolled out with the support of a $12.35 million grant provided by the Government of South Australia.
