They are not putting destination chargers in.
You have one eye? Are you even allowed to drive like that?
I keep the other one as a hot standby
The Great Ocean Road supercharger was originally shown as Lorne but with the last update moved to Torquay, but I think it's all a bit up in the air still, given they are retaining the non-specific name.
Interesting.. look at the URL for the Warrnambool SC on the Tesla site:
Warrnambool | Tesla Australia
So are they planning a Mount Gambier supercharger too in 2018? It is the next logical one for the area.
Yeah, ignore the dot location! They are mostly just indicative of the town, doesn't mean that is the exact spot!
My point was the URL... included "mountgambier".
Possibly. It's the right distance from both Warrnambool and Keith.
But it's strange that they mismatch the Warrnambool location with Mt Gambier in the address.
Here is the first of (I think) 4 destination chargers in the main street of Warrnambool. This one is located in a loading zone on the corner of Leibig and Lava Sts.
I plugged in but the power is not turned on yet so not sure how many kW it is but its close to the large transformer for the street. Power being turned on is not too far off I think.
There are other power pillars in loading zones spread up the street where the other chargers could be located. We will know for sure in a week to 10 days when the main street works are due to be finished.
No news yet from my contacts at council re the location of the Warrnambool Superchargers. If I hear anything I will post it.
Here is the second public destination charger on the corner of Lava and Liebig Sts Warrnambool.
It's power is on, 3 phase and charged me at 88km per hour
Well done, MacRocket. We tried that same one a few days ago - no power, worker said that they had been waiting for it to be connected for months ! Emailed the WCC that night asking when it was going to be activated. Perhaps my prompting actually worked ?
The destination chargers are official!
[Clarification - no news on the superchargers]
Warrnambool Council | Tesla
Note the dot on the map appears to be wrong - 165 Liebig St gives me a location a few blocks north of that.
Noticed a mention in the council minutes, but no detail... apparently it was discussed at a councillor briefing on May 28.
However perhaps if a local wants to ask a few questions they may get an answer?
It's been some time and this location is still listed as Spring 2018 on Tesla's site, despite many other locations being changed to 2019 recently. That's a good sign!
There's nothing in the councils advertised applications or meeting agendas/minutes.
@wpapua - perhaps it is worth driving around looking for evidence of construction? Odds are this will be a 4-stall site.
Tesla appear to have a good relationship with the council (see the destination chargers above) so perhaps check council car parks first?
Chuq, refer to 'Superchargers in Australia', #427. No evidence at Flagstaff Hill yet. Second Destination Charger in Liebig Street, Corner of Lava Street, still not commissioned (after over 6 months - supposed electrical supply issues !). Will advise this forum after Council have advised me that it is 'active'.
Hi, We are heading to Warrnambool over January. Should I assume the council will have both chargers working in time for peak tourist season, or am I being overly optimistic? Any local insights would be great as we are staying at a house, so only have a powerpoint otherwise.
I’m a Warrnambool local.
Ben Story at Warrnambool City is the Council representative negotiating with Tesla.
The Second Destination Charger is still waiting a meter. First one works well (80km/hour) and is not getting much use. Located on the corner of Leunig and Lava St.
Supercharger location at Flagstaff Hill has been approved by council and agreed with Tesla (4 stalls I think). A bit of power upgrade needed so probably won’t have Superchargers till next year.
I’ll ring him tomorrow and report back.
Thanks @wpapua and @MacRocket!
4 stall sounds correct based on other regional locations.
Interesting that they say next year - dates were updated only a few weeks ago and Warrnambool is still Spring 2018.
How odd. This just appeared on Plugshare:
I thought if AC chargers were being installed here, one of the locals would have mentioned it in this thread? Given the timing, just after the SC was confirmed in this thread, it could be an incorrect entry.
