JOLT and Ausgrid Open First Free, Fast Electric Vehicle Charging Station in Mona Vale
Electric vehicle owners and users can now enjoy free, fast charging with the first Ausgrid JOLT EV charging station operational in Mona Vale.
The world-first initiative has transformed an existing Ausgrid streetside kiosk into a state-of-the-art EV charging station on Bungan Street, Mona Vale.
“We’re using existing, essential electrical infrastructure on the street to provide a free service for the community and hopefully help accelerate the transition to electric vehicles in Australia,” Mr Amphlett Lewis said.
“Innovative projects like this are the future of energy. They give our customers access to renewable energy choices and incentivise electric vehicle use which is a key step in the transition towards cleaner transport options.
JOLT CEO Doug McNamee said he plans to rollout 500 charging kiosks across the Ausgrid network.
“We’re excited to be teaming up with Ausgrid for the launch of our Sydney network, giving drivers the ability to access free, fast charging across the city. Drivers will get 7Kwh free per day, potentially saving over $1000 a year,” Mr McNamee said.
