NEW public electric vehicle charging stations will be installed across the Kingston municipality.
Two new EV charging stations will be installed. The stations are jointly funded by Kingston Council and the state government.
One will be installed in Mordialloc at Peter Scullin Reserve, and one at the car park behind Woolworths on Bath Street, Chelsea.
Kingston Council hopes that the stations will help council reduce its C02 emissions to net zero by 2030. Cr Hadi Saab says that transport-related carbon emissions make up 21 per cent of Kingston’s overall emissions profile, and the charging stations could help fix that. “We will continue to look at other opportunities to support community members to opt for zero emission transportation options and hope these new electric vehicle charging stations provide some incentive for further uptake of electric vehicles in the area,” he said.
