The South Australian Government has awarded a grant of almost $12.4 million to the RAA to construct and operate Australia's first statewide electric vehicle (EV) rapid charging network. The grant is part of the government's investment in South Australia's electric vehicle transformation, securing private investment in the EV charging network.
The RAA is one of Australia's most trusted motoring organisations and, with over 120 year's experience, is ideally placed to deliver the statewide charging network.
The network will comprise 536 fast and rapid chargers across 140 electric vehicle charging stations in 55 rural, regional and metropolitan service locations.
The RAA will start the design and construction of the EV charging network in supermarkets, carparks, town centres, council owned sites, hotels and motels throughout South Australia.
The site locations are aligned with main roads and regional thoroughfares throughout South Australia, with regional towns hosting sites helping motorists to overcome range anxiety and encouraging visits within those regions.
Construction is expected to commence in the latter part of 2022, with completion of the charging network to be finalised by the end of 2023.
