New electric vehicle charging stations will be installed in two locations across the Shire of Manjimup, forming part of the nation’s longest electric highway.

The Shire of Manjimup endorsed the EV charging stations that will be installed in Johnston Crescent in Manjimup and in Pioneer Park in Walpole, making up two out of 49 locations in the WA EV network stretching from Kununurra to Esperance and east to Kalgoorlie.

Synergy will own, install and maintain the new EV charging stations within the Shire.

The EV charging stations will allow electric vehicles to charge up in as little as 15 minutes and allow EVs to be more accessible for longer journeys across the region.
