EV charging station opens in Newmarket

Screen-Shot-2015-04-17-at-11.20A new – and free – electric vehicle charging point has been opened at lines company Vector’s Newmarket office.

Vector CEO Simon Mackenzie says Vector is proud to deliver another energy solution.

As the EV market expands, Vector is positioning itself to support this growth and make EVs even more attractive for Aucklanders by providing them with convenient locations to charge up.

“Vector is ideally positioned to bring to life a network of charging stations in Auckland – whether at commercial premises, at home or on the street – with local electricity supply being at the heart of our business,” says Mackenzie.

Vector is currently working closely with Auckland Transport so it can install the first fixed, public charging station on Auckland’s streets.

It hopes to see an EV charging allocated car park outside its office in the within the next few months.

“We hope that once this free public charger is up and running it will form the basis to expand charging stations at strategic locations across Auckland” Mackenzie says.

While people are waiting for their charge on us, they can have a coffee on us too – they just need to pop into reception and grab a voucher for a local cafe.
