You're quick. I added that entry on Saturday.
2 X 350kW by the looks of it. No 50kW unlike most of their sites.
Yes but NRMA have 2x 50 kW chargers less than 1km away at the IGA. Then Cassegrain supercharger as well.
Fast food and 24 hour amenities at the service station. Cafe, super market and trendy burgers at NRMA, restaurant and cellar at Cassegrain.
Spoiled for choice really
Quite a few of their sites are this format. Shell Cove, Kings Meadows, Keith, Murray Bridge, Australind to name a few. I guess it depends on how much traffic they expect.
NRMA members now get 20% off at Chargefox's Ultra-rapid stes (but not the other sites in the Chargefox app, where the sites are owned by third parties and Chargefox does the billing)
Chargefox ultra-rapid chargers | Member benefits | The NRMA
With the non-road-service membership $5/month, that means at 62.5 kWh/month you'd break even on the discount.
Awesome - I won't even come close to breaking even but I'm going to sign up to support two companies paving the way. I assume that the NRMA free period will end soon too, with the $5 a month also giving access to that network.
Yes, I assume this means that Chargefox will be responsible for billing on the NRMA chargers - and this discount will mean that a lot of NRMA members will already have their membership linked to their Chargefox account, enabling the free access.
And I've signed up today to support this movement. I'll make sure to tell them that's why I joined.
Good time to join with joining fee ($55) waived.
Two new chargers were spotted today being delivered to the Gundagai site.
And live again!
Chargefox opens up Melbourne to Sydney route for EV drivers - Chargefox
Email has some additional info in the quote from the CEO.
"We’ll be opening a further four charging stations this summer"
That is presumably Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie, Cooma and West Perth
(Being the only 4 remaining planned locations on the Chargefox map)
The "Coffs Harbour" location is actually just north of Coffs, at Moonee Marketplace (which is better - just adjacent to the highway, and won't be bypassed by the Coffs Harbour bypass that is in planning). I haven't been able to find any DAs for the charger installation, though.
Port and Cooma both look ready to go, though. Cooma may soft-launch with only one charger active.
It's unfortunate that the day after trumpeting the news that you can drive from Adelaide to Sydney on their network, the Goulburn site fell over again, putting a bit of a hole in that route
The Tritium charger system seems to have some reliability issues..NRMA and ChargeFox seem to fall over a lot
Yeah the one near me, has been down for yonks (like weeks/months), I daresay it is not used much but yeah.
I see Chargefox has sent customers an update email -
In addition to that, it appears Cooma is partially active (the 50 kW and 1x 350 kW unit) according to their app!
Sorry Tesla, but I now officially love Chargefox Karuah. I doubt I’ll ever use the Heatherbrae supercharger again. The Karuah site is much better located, toilets at the servo, simple snacks there or cafes and bakeries across the road if you want something more substantial. A very minor and pleasant detour off the motorway.
Charged at 138 kW yesterday. And 20% discount for NRMA members.
What’s not to like?
And not one but 3 DC chargers, with 2 capable of supercharger speeds. Good stuff!
