The UWA Renewable Energy Vehicle (REV) Project is launching Australia's first commercial, combined charging standard, fast-charging station which has been installed by the REV Project at The University of Western Australia's campus, near the University Club.
The fast-charging station is approximately seven times faster than REV's public charging stations in the Perth metro area and about 25 times faster than home-charging, and will significantly change the game for users of renewable energy vehicles.
The new Combo-Charger is located in UWA's car park no. 3 next to the University Club, entrance from Hackett Drive, and is open for use by the general public. Power is free of charge and no parking fees apply.
The launch will be attended by Hon. Bill Marmion, Minister for Finance; Mines and Petroleum, Chris Hatton, MLA, Member for Balcatta and UWA Vice-Chancellor, Professor Paul Johnson.
PICTURE OPPORTUNITY: Minister unveiling the station and connecting a car for charging.
WHAT: Launch of electric vehicle fast charging station.
