A few months ago there was a DA at Hornsby Council. It was proposed to be outside the new BMW dealership on Pacific Hwy Waitara. There’s a green power thingy there.Anyone know the address for the Hornsby Jolt charger - First converted power kiosk in Sydney offers fast EV charging - free for 15 minutes?
Hornsby and neighbouring Waitara have a huge amount of high and low rise apartments so public charging will be needed for those who can't simply plug in or install their own charging equipment at home.Weird suburbs to be starting in..
I'd have thought Sydney's East and Inner West where you have a high %ge of people relying on street parking (and probably a higher percentage of EVs) would have been smarter.
The Inner West has a low proportion of EVs precisely because there is so little off-street parking. Although having said that, I saw three Model 3s parked on the street this morning within a few km of my house.Weird suburbs to be starting in..

On the Stuart Highway between Port Augusta and Alice Springs.What do people see as the use case of a 20-ish kW charger? To me, that's in the Range of Uselessness.
Up to 7 kW is perfectly adequate for overnight charging. Hence built-in (AC) chargers in EVs have about this power.
(Well) beyond 50kW is great for on a trip. Hence Superchargers are 120+ kW (SOC and battery dependent of course).
When would a two to four (?) hour charge be useful?
I don't spend much time at shopping centres, is that somewhere people would actually bother to seek out a charging station? Perhaps because I can charge at home I've never bothered looking for a charger in suburban Melbourne.
When would you use these?
