The Hepburn Shire council is participating in a partnership with fourty-three regional councils, eleven metropolitan councils and various greenhouse or climate alliances, to work on developing an electric vehicle charging network. This project has been funded by local governments and the Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP). You can read more about this potential network by reading the study from the Central Victorian Greenhouse Alliance, linked below.
If you are a EV driver, you can charge up in Daylesford using the 25kW DC charger installed by Hepburn Shire Council and Hepburn Wind. The new charger is located outside the Daylesford Townhall and is part of the ChargeFox network. This charger can do 130-150kms per hour. The steps to charge your car with ChargeFox are linked below.
