After a successful pilot program, RAA is now offering home charging solutions for EV drivers across the State.
With several installations already underway, EV drivers can now benefit from the latest in smart charging technology while they recharge in the comfort and convenience of their homes.
RAA CEO Nick Reade said the smart charging technology supersedes the trickle charging currently used by 50 per cent of EV owners in their homes.
“By installing one of RAA’s home charging solutions, EV drivers can expect to recharge their EV up to three times faster than when plugging a cable into a wall socket.”
“As EV ownership continues to grow and trends in charging habits develop, this technology is expected to adapt to help manage charging demand and grid stability,” he said.
“Providing home-charging solutions for South Australians is just another way RAA is supporting the State’s transition to an electric future.”
RAA is also building Australia’s first State border-to-border EV charging network in South Australia with construction of the first of 140 planned charging sites scheduled to start in the next month.
RAA is also transitioning its own fleet to EV-alternatives, with just under half of the organisation’s non-patrol fleet now either hybrid or battery EVs.
As South Australia’s largest membership organisation, RAA is also evolving its roadside assistance fleet so Patrols can keep EV drivers moving, working with motoring clubs across the country to trial options like mobile charging at the roadside.
