The WA EV network has reached the halfway mark with the opening of Synergy’s Jerramungup EV fast-charging site.
The fast charger is the 26th site to open out of 49 planned locations throughout the state, and once finished, it will cover 7,000km north to Kununurra, along WA’s south-west coast to Esperance, and east to Kalgoorlie and Eucla.
Reece Whitby, WA Energy Minister, said the WA EV Network is providing the backbone of EV charging infrastructure, which is critical for driving the continued update of EVs across WA.
“These charging stations are now in 25 locations, making it is easier for EV drivers to explore our wonderful State, while reducing their travel time and range anxiety.
“The WA EV Network is playing an important role in supporting sustainable transportation development and reducing carbon emissions as we transition to net zero by 2050.”
Warmun, Derby, Halls Creek, Norseman, and Hamelin Pool have all received EV fast chargers in recent months, with construction already underway for locations at Billabong, Minilya, Kalgoorlie, Kojonup, Brookton, Ravensthorpe, and Bunbury.
The WA EV Network, scheduled for completion by mid-2024, is part of the Cook Labor Government’s $43.5 million investment in EV infrastructure in WA, aimed at boosting EV uptake to support our journey to net zero emissions by 2050.
Since the first charger went live in Geraldton in April 2023, there have been more than 5,500 charging sessions completed along the WA EV network.
