North Woolongong Fast Charge - It's alive

Post by markrmarkr » Mon, 09 Jan 2017, 18:06

Hi all,

I took the Leaf from Earlwood in Sydney to the North Woolongong Fast charger today. This is the one Feng discovered late last year.

Well its now functional. I used it today and it works fine. It's on plugshare, and there are some pics and a map.

It's easily in range from the NRMA Strathfield FC, so if you can make it to Strathfield, now you can also go to Woolongong and beyond!

I'll post more details later.

Cheers,

Mark

Awesome! Hopefully it's been updated on various maps so people can find it?

Thats great news!

I am aware of a few other AC public charging stations planned around Wollongong so this is a fantastic start.

Will have to check it out on my next road trip. Image

Well it's on plugshare, which seems to be the preferred system. I even put a little map of the campus on plugshare.

Also, it seems to be open 24/7 as there are no boom gates or anything to restrict access.

Here is a video. Sorry I got a bit excited.

Cheers,

Mark
