May 11th, 2022EV stations
Hepburn Shire will soon have three more electric vehicle charging stations thanks to a collaboration between Hepburn Energy (formally Hepburn Wind), Hepburn Shire Council and Chargefox.
Chargefox has secured $89,500 through the Victorian Government’s Destination Charging Across Victoria Program for three 50 kW DC fast-chargers.
The program will install 141 EV fast-charging stations at 116 key tourist destinations and high-use locations across Victoria by July next year. The three DCAV charging stations will be installed in Creswick, Hepburn Springs and Trentham by January next year.
The charging stations will be installed by local service provider, Fells Electrical.
Hepburn Shire Mayor Cr Tim Drylie said the program would ensure the community and visitors had access to fast charging infrastructure that would offer high connectivity across our major towns, while showcasing the shire’s efforts to implement meaningful emissions reductions strategies.
