AN enthusiastic crowd of electric vehicle (EV) owners, including an electric motorcycle rider, met at Sandy Point on Saturday to attend the launch of Sandy Point’s own public EV charging station.

With the facilitation of Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action (DEECA) and the South Gippsland Shire Council, Energy Innovation Co-op’s grant from the Toora and Foster Community Bank helped install 2 x 22kW AC electric vehicle charging stations at Sandy Point Men’s Shed. The chargers are connected to the 15kW solar array on the roof of the Mens’ Shed, so when it is producing energy, EV owners will be able to charge their vehicles using 100% renewable energy while donating to the local community.
