Apart from Plugshare there is of course the ChargePoint map. If you mean, is there a section on this forum, you will find the NSW locations mentioned under the Sydney Branch of AEVA in the Branches section of this forum.

I think due to the rate of new chargers appearing, it would be best not to re-invent the wheel. Plugshare is the best site out there, there is also Openchargemap but I don't believe it is as thorough.

20 More Chargepoint chargers installed in the darling harbour carpark, according to Plaugshare.

wow, what a ripoff,   but whats its compare to other parking centres in the city? do the prices vary for time of day/nights?   some are similarly priced for weekdays, but have a flat rate.


edit.
Just finished looking at other parking stations around that part of the CBD, and the rate is actually pretty good, others on the cbd side are average $25 for the first hour! some as high as $40. average around the west side is between #$15 to $20. so $18 is right in the middle.

When I added the entry on my phone and edited it shortly after, it ended up creating two entries, one of them without a photo. I've reported it to Plugshare, not sure if it's fixed yet. This one should have a photo: https://api.plugshare.com/view/location/103640

It felt like such a waste to see so many unused stations!

To have 20 stations in one spot is good as it should reduce the chances of being ICE'd. Unfortunately I couldn't see any restrictive signage like "Electric Charging Station Only - No Parking".

The end result could be that they end up with 20 non EV's taking up those spaces! Extremely annoying!
