With interest in electric vehicles growing, we wanted to understand the effects that charging these vehicles will have on our network. So we added an electric car to our vehicle fleet and installed fast-chargers at strategic sites across the region.
You'll find a WEL Networks fast charger at these locations:
The electric vehicle fast charger takes around 20 minutes to ‘fill’ your vehicle (compared to a standard charger which takes around four hours) and is free for public use.
We're currently installing a fast charger in Hamilton's CBD.
With approximately 1,300 electric vehicles and hybrids on New Zealand roads, we're confident the installation of electric vehicle fast chargers across the Waikato will encourage the uptake of electric vehicles across New Zealand.
