Byron Bay Council, in beautiful northern New South Wales (Australia) became the first local council authority in the country to install an electric vehicle fast charger in Australia. They chose the Veefil-RT by Tritium for their investment in EV infrastructure.
Mayor Simon Richardson said of the installation, “A key barrier to electric vehicle uptake is ‘range anxiety’ or the fear of not being about to get home. Having a fast charging station in Byron Bay and hopefully in the other major towns, will help allay those fears and enable people to seriously consider this zero emissions transport option. Plus, it will provide a central location at the Byron Bay Library for Council’s electric vehicle to charge up and get back out on the road. A quick charge station will also allow us to add electric vehicles to the Council fleet.”
