Charge while you shop

We’re planning to accelerate and support the uptake of electric vehicles (EVs) in Bayside with more public EV charging stations, delivered in partnership with JOLT, an electric vehicle charging network company.

Nine public EV charging stations are proposed for some of Bayside’s highly visited shopping precincts, encouraging EV drivers to shop and dine locally while they charge up. 

These fast 50kw EV chargers will be installed at no cost to Council and provide free 7kWh of charging to each customer every 24 hours, equal to 45-50 km of driving range.

EV charging stations with digital advertising screens are proposed for the following locations:
