The WA branch of AEVA raised funds for the purchase and installation of two Tritium Veefil 50 kW chargers, linking the capital with the beautiful south coastal town of Esperance.
The second charger was installed in Ravensthorpe after a long and at times frustrating effort to find a suitable location with enough power and willing support from the host. The charger is operational now (at half power) and can be accessed using the Chargefox network.
An application to upgrade the supply to the charger has been made and we hope to see the full 50 kW available by June. ...jump to this story
All electric vehicles manufactured after January 1st 2019 are required to wear a blue triangle metal EV label on each licence plate. Sometimes they come with a new car, sometimes they don't. The AEVA encourages all EV owners to fit these labels, whether your vehicle is new or not. You can purchase these from AEVA, follow the link to order yours! ...jump to this story
AEVA notes that the war against Ukraine is being sustained by Russian exports of oil and gas. It also notes that reliance on fossil fuels is complicating Europe’s ability to strengthen the sanctions which are needed to counter Russia’s aggression. The European Union has now realised that it must end its dependence on fossil fuel imports from Russia.
AEVA believes that all countries must confront the national security imperative to eliminate their demand for petroleum by accelerating the shift to electric transport. In this context, AEVA urges the Australian Government to develop policies which will accelerate the move away from fossil fuels in the transport sector. Our national security will be enhanced by greatly improved fuel security.
To accelerate the transition to electric mobility millions of ICE cars that are on the road today will have to be converted to EVs. That is usually a lengthy and costly process. Not any more. Transition One just might have the solution!
