Counties Power installed the first electric vehicle charging station in Waiuku.
Read about the project
In an initiative with Waiuku Museum, Counties Power installed a charging station at the Waiuku Agriculture and Machinery Museum on Kitchener Road.
Counties Power is a Pukekohe-based electricity distribution company that services Southern Auckland and Northern Waikato areas. They have run a small fleet of EVs since 2013.
Demand for the facility was strong from the outset, with 84 charging sessions in a single month.
The charging station enables the uptake of electric vehicles by local businesses and community as well as establishing Waiuku as a destination for EV users from out of town.
This project was approved for $30,000 of co-funding from round three of the Low Emission Vehicles Contestable Fund.
