New year, new sites: Eleven RAA Charge sites go under construction in January

16 January, 2024

South Australia’s first border-to-border electric vehicle charging network is powering into 2024 with 11 new sites going into construction this month.

The new charging sites comprise of three 7kW Destination, four 150kW Rapid and four 200kW Ultra-rapid charging stations, spanning from Coober Pedy in the north to Bordertown in the south.

The RAA Charge network is now more than 75% complete with 106 charging sites and 329 charging points online and operational in South Australia.

RAA Chief Executive Officer Nick Reade said the RAA Charge network is providing EV drivers with the confidence to travel across South Australia without the fear of range anxiety.

“With 75% of the charging sites located in regional SA and 98% of them less than 200km apart, range anxiety is quickly becoming a thing of the past.

“Already the network has made driving an EV across South Australia this summer easier than it has ever been.

“These new sites will soon bring the overall count of operational and publicly accessible charging locations to 117.

“Over the holiday period last month, the RAA Charge network experienced a remarkable 60 per cent surge in usage as compared to the 2023 monthly average of 1,332 charging sessions, indicating EV drivers are confidently exploring our state’s regions like never before,” said Mr. Reade.

Once complete in 2024, the charging network will span across 140 locations including 54 Rapid and Ultra-rapid charging locations and more than 500 charging points across the state.
