Napier Charger Opening - Thursday 24th November at 5pm
This week, an official opening of the ‘Power Park’ which is located in the Dickens Street public car park, next to the Quest Hotel, has been installed in partnership with the Napier City Council.
The charging station forms part of Unison’s wider project to support EV uptake across its network with chargers already installed in Hastings, Rotorua and a fourth planned for Taupo. Mr Sutherland says those who want to find out more about EVs are invited to an EV meet-up on Thursday 24 November from 5pm at the Dickens Street charger.
“We wanted to offer people who haven’t experienced an EV the chance to get inside one, ask questions and find out what they are all about.”
There will be a range of EVs at the meet-up, such as the Tesla S, BMW i3, Nissan Leaf, and Renault Kangoo van. The meet-up is being organised with Charge Net NZ who are unveiling several more DC fast chargers across the country next week as part of establishing a nationwide network.
Unison’s electric vehicle charging station in Napier would be free to use until 1 April 2017, and thereafter, a typical charge will cost around $8.00.
