THE new NRMA electric vehicle fast charger at Bathurst had a slow June, but has been busier this month.
The charger, which is free for electric vehicle drivers' personal use for the moment but will only be free for NRMA members in the future, was installed in mid-April.
It was the 10th of the NRMA's fast charging stations to open across the state, following Sydney Olympic Park, Wallsend near Newcastle, Jindabyne, Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley, Mittagong in the Southern Highlands, Narrandera, Berry, Young and West Wyalong.
The NRMA said its Bathurst charger was used for six electric vehicle charges in June, but had racked up 24 charges for this month by Monday, July 29.
"The NRMA is serious about ensuring the next generation of mobility is accessible not just in city areas but right across our regions, and what better place to make that happen than in Bathurst?" NRMA chief investment officer Rachel Wiseman said at the time of the Bathurst charger's opening.
The NRMA charger, as well as a six-bay Tesla supercharger station, is outside the Bathurst Visitor Information Centre.
Up-to-date statistics were not available for the six Tesla superchargers, but Tesla reported earlier this year that the chargers were used 79 times throughout April.
