New Bay hook-up is electric

Eurobodalla is plugging into the electric-vehicle network with the launch of a new charging station at Batemans Bay this week.

The Batemans Bay charging station has been developed by the NRMA in partnership with Council, and follows the opening of a charging station at Berry in January. The NRMA plans to install 40 electric-vehicle fast-charging stations across NSW and the ACT for the $10 million project, with 15 already installed.

Eurobodalla Council’s sustainability coordinator Mark Shorter said an increase in the number of charging stations along the state would reduce ‘range anxiety’ – the fear of running out of power – and encourage more drivers of electric vehicles to the region.

“Drivers will be able to stop for a 30-minute recharge. That’s time for some shopping and coffee in the CBD. So it’s good for electric vehicle drivers and good for local business,” he said.

The Batemans Bay electrical-vehicle fast-charge station was launched at 10am on Thursday 13th June at the Batemans Bay Visitor Centre. Councillor Jack Tait and representatives from the NRMA and Eurobodalla Shire Council were present.
