The WA EV Network is now half complete, with its recent expansion to over 25 locations — the latest being the opening of Synergy’s Jerramungup EV fast charging site.
Synergy and Horizon Power are installing these charging stations along key travel routes, averaging less than 200 kilometres apart, and Hyden’s EV fast charger is now the 26th site to open out of the 49 planned locations across the state.
Once the network is complete, it will cover 7,000 kilometres north to Kununurra, along WA’s south west coast to Esperance and east to Kalgoorlie and Eucla.
The 150 kilowatt Jerramungup charger — which will top up an EV in approximately 20 minutes — is located along the southern coastline and connects Albany to Esperance.
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.
More than 5,500 charging sessions completed along the WA EV Network since the first charger went live in Geraldton in April 2023.
The $43.5 million WA EV Network is scheduled for completion by mid-2024.
WA Energy Minister Reece Whitby said: “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.”
