2.2. Supporting low emissions transport

We encourage the uptake of low emissions transport by supporting the installation of public EV charging infrastructure.

In addition to transitioning our own fleet to low-emission alternatives, we are also supporting our community to embrace sustainable transport.

We're dedicated to facilitating the install of public EV chargers on Council land by third parties, benefiting locals and the sustainable tourism industry.

Since September 2022, four 50KW public EV chargers have been installed on Council land in the folllowing towns - Yackandandah, Beechworth, Chiltern and Rutherglen.

The Yackandandah EV charger (located at the Yack Senior Citizens Centre) was a collaborative effort led by Totally Renewable Yackandandah (TRY), Indigo Power, and Yackandandah Community Development Corporation (YCDco).

The Beechworth (Burke Museum), Chiltern (Chiltern Community Hub) and Rutherglen (Murray St carpark) chargers were installed by Evie Networks.

These projects received Victorian Government funding and support from Council.

Use Plugshare to locate public and private EV chargers in Indigo Shire.
