New Kimberley charging stations powering our driving future
Written on the 22 March 2018
Electric vehicles can now travel across WA's Kimberley region, thanks to three new charging stations servicing the 900km stretch of Northern Highway between Kununurra and Derby.
Due to their limited travelling range, electric vehicles were previously only able to reach Kununurra in the East Kimberley, or Derby in the West Kimberley.
"Knowing they can now complete their journey through the Kimberley will encourage more electric vehicle users to travel through this magnificent part of Australia," Ms Stigwood said.
"We have a range of exciting projects across the state focusing on providing innovative energy choices for customers," Ms Stigwood said.
"Making electricity available to power vehicles is just one of the ways we're working toward our vision for the future of energy."
Chris Jones, National Secretary of the Australian Electric Vehicle Association said using electric vehicles has a number of benefits.
"In addition to saving on fuel, electric cars are quieter than those with internal combustion engines, and have no exhaust emissions which improves public health and reduces ecological impacts," Mr Jones said.
The new vehicle charging stations are located at the Warmun Roadhouse, Halls Creek Service Station and Fitzroy Crossing Roadhouse.
