Any news on the Bacchus Marsh charger?
There was never a Bacchus Marsh charger. There was an application for a service station and fast food outlet. On the plans there was a "future development" section on undeveloped land next door, and in one corner it said "indicative location of electric charging station". On the permit it says on of the conditions is that the applicant must provide an EV charging station in that location within 7 years. How the leap was made to "this is an Evie Networks location that is coming soon" I have no idea!

Sounds like there are about to be a lot more Evie sites out there:

Evie Networks, owned by the St Baker Energy Innovation Fund, will receive $8.85 million, the biggest share of the funding pool.

Mr St Baker, whose energy interests also include the Vales Point coal-fired power plant in NSW, said Evie would use the funds to develop 158 charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs) in every capital city.

“We are now contracted and committed to 300 fast-charging stations across Australia within the next two years,” he said.

....

Other recipients of the funding include ASX-listed fuel supplier Ampol with $7.05 million, French utilities giant Engie with $6.85 million, Chargefox with $1.4 million and Electric Highways Tasmania with $400,000.

Always seems a bit suspicious to me how Evie gets all of this funding with a history of slow/limited roll-outs... And ChargeFox has a history of deploying sites quicker with less holdups and gets less funding.

Sort of feels like a SpaceX/Boeing situation.

A bit more details here: Canberra to fund 400 electric car charging stations

Each be capable of charging at least two vehicles simultaneously at 50 kilowatts or above.

NSW will get 127 of the fast-charging stations, across Sydney, Wollongong, the Central Coast and Newcastle.

Another 106 will be installed in Melbourne and Geelong, with 86 destined for Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Central Coast.

The remainder will appear in Perth (33), Adelaide (29), Hobart (10), Canberra (9) and Darwin (3).
