    Electric vehicle station scheme

    “The government doesn’t believe in putting in charging stations unless there are electric vehicles so someone has got to make a stance.”

    Well done for taking a stance AEVA Tasmania.

    It's fantastic news! Although I'm not a part of the company (would be if I could afford it!) I catch up with a lot of these people regularly (at AEVA events). The spokesperson (Clive) is very experienced, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We are lucky to have so many people in the group (the business has 8 investors at last count) who are both supportive and financially able to contribute!

    Very pleased this is happening, and that someone is able to lead the way.

    Is it an option for those of us with more modest means to kick in a few dollars (maybe as a group thing) to help? At first glance I'm assuming not if this is a formal commercial venture rather than a bunch of enthusiasts.

    You probably want to talk to @bcashman about that! (if he doesn't respond to the tag - notice he hasn't been on TMC for a while - PM me and I'll pass on his email address)

    Hi everyone. Definitely exciting times here in Tasmania! The project is a commercial venture, but we are looking at different ways we can get our enthusiastic EV community involved.

    If anyone is interested, has ideas, or wants to know more, feel free to drop me a line at [email protected].
