Visionstream unveils new ChargePoint Electric Vehicle charging station at Heatherton
A new ChargePoint Electric Vehicle Charging Station has been unveiled at Visionstream’s office in Heatherton, Victoria. ChargePoint is the world’s largest electric vehicle (EV) charging network, with their Australian arm operated by Visionstream.
Currently ChargePoint has over 300 networked charging stations across Australia and 2,200+ member drivers. The additional charging station at Heatherton adds another ChargePoint public charging station to the network which ChargePoint members can view conveniently via their smart phones and use with a simple access card.
Visionstream CEO, Richard Kelleway, said that he was pleased to see the uptake of ChargePoint and EV’s in Australia.
“ChargePoint is expanding its Australian footprint through strategic relationships with councils, hoteliers, fuel companies and car park operators in an effort to educate the community on the benefit of EVs and a better way to drive,” he said.
As more and more ChargePoint charging stations pop up on Australia’s main arterials, workplaces, shopping centres, homes and apartment buildings, driving an EV is set to become even more convenient for individuals and businesses.
“Businesses are under a lot of pressure to minimise their environmental footprint and to introduce greener processes, it’s inevitable that EVs will continue to grow in popularity,” said Kelleway. “We are striving to stay ahead of the curve and develop strategic, sustainable and efficient solutions for individuals and businesses to better manage the impact of their driving.”
