The RAA Charge network is expanding across regional South Australia, with ten new charging sites going into construction this month.
The new charging sites include seven 7kW Destination charging sites, two 150kW Rapid charging sites, and one 200kW Ultra-rapid charging site.
The highly anticipated Rapid and Ultra-rapid chargers – which will allow EV drivers to recharge their EV in just 10-45 minutes are the first of the 54 Rapid and Ultra-rapid charging sites planned for the network.
The new charging sites will soon bring the total number of charging locations online and available for public use up to 45.
RAA, EV Charging Program Director, Andrew Howard, said the new charging sites going into construction in June demonstrated the growing reach of the network into metro and regional South Australia.
“With 25% of the network already completed as of May, and the first Rapid and Ultra-Rapid chargers now under construction, the roll out of the RAA Charge network is well underway.
“Once the network is complete in 2024, 75% of the charging sites will be located in regional SA, and 98% of the planned charging sites will be located less than 200kms apart.
“This will go a long way to alleviating range anxiety for South Australian EV drivers, and visitors to our great state,” he said.
EV Charging sites under construction:
7kW Destination chargers
150kW Rapid chargers
200kW Ultra-rapid chargers
The Destination charging sites will support the Type 2 plug, while the Rapid and Ultra-rapid charging sites will feature a mix of CCS2 and CHAdeMO plugs.
EV drivers will be able to see which chargers have both the CCS2 and CHAdeMO plugs on the Chargefox app.

The RAA Charge network is being delivered with the assistance of $12.35 million grant from the Government of South Australia.
