First Public Charging Station in Koo Wee Rup!

For a long while now Bass Coast (and specifically Phillip Island) has been just out of reach for electric vehicles like the LEAF and the i3. But not anymore! Sometimes councils are unwilling or unable to deploy publicly available charging infrastructure, so we partnered with a local business to deploy a publicly accessible (and free to use) electric vehicle charging point right in the centre of Koo Wee Rup.

Koo Wee Rup has a growing population of over 3,500 (census 2016). When stopping in town, a must do is to grab a pie from the local bakery or get among the locals at the Royal Hotel. Over the years, the local supermarket and surrounding stores have had modern facelifts to contrast to older, yet well maintained buildings to tailor more effectively to your stay.

The install was first discussed back in February when Malcolm Brown, who had little knowledge about EVs or its infrastructure, gave us a call in a bid to understand how it all works. Malcolm doesn't own an EV himself but operates as an environmental consultant, so he could therefore recognise the benefits of such infrastructure. Malcolm’s idea was to install an EV charger to attract EV owners who use the Koo Wee Rup Bypass to visit places like local wineries or en route to Phillip Island.

The charger is already proving to be popular and gives EV owners the opportunity to patronise the local businesses and grab a

coffee and some food. We regularly partner with local businesses and the community to make charging facilities more widespread and accessible. We do this because we believe electric vehicles are better for the environment and well, just better overall!

So if you own (or know of) a business that would like to attract new customers and instantly create point of difference (for very little outlay), get in touch! Furthermore ask about how EVolution may subsidise the hardware and installation!

Don't forget to stop off at Koo Wee Rup on your next trip!

"Was going on a road trip in my Tesla and was desperately looking a J1772 to Tesla adaptor. Sent an email query to EVolution and got a text in 5min!! Advised to go online to order and it will be delivered in the morning. Got my adaptor delivered as promised. Amazing service and at a competitive price as well!"
