Inner West Council has secured funding for 136 public electric vehicle charging stations to be rolled out across the Inner West. This is by far the biggest number of any Local Government Area in NSW.

The new chargers will range from seven kilowatts to 75 kilowatts and will include pole-mounted, pedestal and “kiosk” EV chargers. They will be installed on kerbsides and in public council car parks.

All chargers will be installed over the next 12 months and will be open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and are designed for drivers without offsite parking, such as those in apartments.

Inner West Mayor, Darcy Byrne said, “Our community will be the epicentre of the largest expansion in EV charging ever seen in Australia.

“This is the culmination of our years of work and advocacy on our EV strategy and will make the Inner West the easiest place in the nation to use an electric vehicle.

“This public / private partnership will be funded by NSW Government grants, secured because of the quality of our proposal and plans.

“This is another huge step forward in making the Inner West the most sustainable municipality in Australia.”
