Casino has gone electric.
An electrical vehicle (EV) charging station has been set up in the community centre car park on Walker St.
The charging station is part of the NRMA’s stable of EV fast-charging stations across the country and all EV car owners can charge their cars for free at the moment.
The NRMA network will link up with major routes in Queensland, Victoria, and South Australia and EV drivers will be able to travel through these states with little to no range anxiety.
In most cases, EV drivers will be no more than 150 kilometres from a charging station.
The project is jointly funded between the NRMA and the State Government and not by council ratepayers.
