Electric vehicles (EVs) aren’t the stuff of science fiction, they are very real and they are here to stay! 

If you haven’t seen an electric vehicle for yourself, come along to an event or talk to a local dealer.  At these events, you will be able to talk to some of the owners or read information about the current EV situation in New Zealand and what steps are being taken to increase uptake.

    SATURDAY, 19th October 2019, 10AM - 4PM


    Come and join us at Redruth Park for a day of learning, playing and celebrating sustainability!
    Electric Vehicles will be there with a display from Better NZ Trust and South Canterbury EV Owners Group. Rides and drives from the Collins Street carpark. Extra volunteers always welcome.
    This family-friendly day will have something for everyone, and is just a short walk from the car boot sale at the Crows Nest Timaru. Find out more here. Alpine Energy have joined our sponsors — power available for selected stalls!

    Have you been to Redruth Park lately? This local gem has had a facelift, with old trees removed and hundreds of natives planted. There are walking tracks that link up with the Crows Nest Timaru, Saltwater Creek walkway and the cemetery and you'll get great views out to sea and over the Saltwater Creek lagoon. It's the perfect spot for a fun family day out!
