Electric Highway for South West WA builds momentum

The Electric Highway concept for South West Western Australia is making good progress, according to an article in The West Australian on October 11.  AEVA was instrumental in planning the project and now the RAC is in talks with WA's South West councils about installing electric vehicle chaining stations in nine towns and shires to create an "electric highway" that would open the region to electric cars and motorcycles. If successful the highway would be the first of its kind in Australia.

The RAC has spoken to local governments in Mandurah, Bunbury, Harvey, Busselton, Nannup, Busselton, Bridgetown, Margaret River and Augusta.
Councils have been mainly supportive.  The RAC proposes to cover the installation costs of the chargers, with the councils looking after ongoing operating costs.
