If you’re considering buying an EV, then you’ll be keen to understand where you can charge your vehicle. While most charging will occur at home, overnight, there’s a growing network of fast chargers that help you get around Australia on road trips and holidays.
The latest charging site is located in Cooma, at the Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre, Yulin Avenue, Cooma, NSW, 2630.
The Chargefox site features 2x 350kW capable Tritium Veefil PK chargers, each with a single CCS2 plug. Chargefox Cooma also features a Tritium Veefil RT 50kW charger with both CCS2 and CHAdeMO plugs. At an average of 20kWh/100km, the 350kW chargers can deliver up to 450km of range in 15 minutes.
The site is equipped with both CHAdeMO and CCS2 plug types, making them suitable for all current and future DC-capable EVs, including Tesla (some older models may require an adapter).
Chargefox has multiple partnerships with car manufacturers that means many Australians could charge on the Chargefox network for free for the first few years of ownership. Those that have to pay will pay around half and one third the cost of petrol at a rate of $0.40c/kW.
The freely-available Chargefox app also helps users easily find, use and pay for charging across hundreds of stations in Australia and New Zealand.
Chargefox is Australia’s largest and fastest-growing public electric vehicle (EV) charging network, has expanded with the opening of their 19th ultra-rapid charging station, this time in Cooma, NSW.
The location in Cooma opens up tourist areas south of Canberra, including the Jindabyne snowfields region and popular coastal towns such as Eden. Locals and tourists alike travelling between Adelaide and Sydney now have access to this world-class technology, delivering up to 400km of range in only 15 minutes and backed up by 100% renewable energy.
“We’re starting to see some significant environmental milestones as we continue to expand our network across Australia. In December alone, usage across our network reduced carbon emissions by 91 tonnes, avoiding the equivalent of 50,000 kilos of coal-burning.
