Chargefox is proud to have built the first 12 EV charging stations that are being launched today by the RAA, in partnership with the South Australian Government, as they kick off the state’s electric vehicle (EV) charging network.

Switching on the first sites marks a significant milestone in the rollout of South Australia’s first border-to-border EV charging network with 140 sites coming online across the state.

Across the first 12 Chargefox sites, 59 new electric vehicle charging plugs are available with hundreds more in the coming months.
To use the new RAA Charge network, EV drivers must download the Chargefox app to locate the closest charging site, charge their vehicle and complete payment. Chargefox, a subsidiary of Australian Motoring Services (AMS), will provide software, driver support and management services for the network.

Group CEO of AMS, Michael Reed, said the ultimate goal was to create a network of charging stations stretching across Australia: “Chargefox’s EV charging network is already the largest in Australia. We have more than 1200 plugs on the public network, with plans to grow that to 5000 plugs, including 2000 fast chargers, by 2025.

“This rollout in South Australia will help to increase the take-up of electric vehicles in the state and also eliminate range anxiety and support tourism. Our commitment is to clean energy. All our ultra-rapid stations are powered by 100 per cent renewable energy, and our goal is to have the entire network run on 100 per cent renewable energy.”

Chargefox and AMS are proudly Australian owned and operated and dedicated to providing the very best service and support to Australian EV drivers.
