EV charger milestone
Council’s Evie Networks fast electric vehicle charger in Mosman Square Car Park is set to mark a major milestone over the next month, saving 20,000kgs of CO2 emissions.
The fast charger has proven increasingly popular with Mosman motorists since its installation in December 2020 and helped curb the area’s carbon footprint by using renewable energy, avoiding the burning of fossil fuels.
While it took 48 weeks including over lockdown, to reach the first 10,000kg, the second 10,000kg will be reached in about half the time, 25 weeks, with usage continuing to trend upwards since the end of the last lockdown.
Electric vehicle ownership in Mosman is estimated to have doubled during the past two years and council expects the use of electric vehicle chargers to grow as more people opt for electric vehicles in coming years.
