Electric car chargers arrive

Council’s 21st century city centre will have electric car charging capability.

European type 2 electric car chargers will be installed in Liebig Street as part of the City Centre Renewal, making Warrnambool a key link for electric vehicles traveling on the Princes Highway, as well as those travelling the length of the Great Ocean Road.

Two “destination chargers” have been provided free of charge by Tesla, who have also offered to contribute to the installation cost.

Type 2 chargers are suitable for a range of electric cars.

The average charging time for a vehicle will be less than two hours. For overnight travellers, there will be incentive for electric car users to enjoy a meal in the CBD before returning to their hotel.

During the day, there will be opportunity to take advantage of the diverse retail and dining experiences offered throughout the Warrnambool CBD.
