Two out of three EV chargers are now yellow

6 June, 2023

If you take a stroll through Adelaide CBD, you’ll notice that two-thirds of the Electric Vehicle (EV) chargers are now part of the RAA Charge statewide network.

In May, the network saw an additional 22 new charging sites come online, and is on track to record its 1000th charging session in the coming weeks.

RAA Charge holds an impressive majority of public AC charging locations with 12 out of the total 16 charging stations in Adelaide now branded yellow, thanks to a collaboration with U-Park and Auto Park car parks.

RAA CEO Nick Reade said the May milestone reflects RAA’s steady expansion of the network.

“The new charging sites to come online in May bring the total number of charging sites installed and operational to 35, or 25% of the total network installed.

“The impact of the RAA Charge network extends beyond the numbers; it reflects the significant contribution we are making as an organisation towards more sustainable transport in South Australia.”

The new AC fast charging sites will further enhance the network’s capability, providing efficient charging options for EV owners.
