EV Charger

Cost : While the EV Charger is free, we ask users to join and maintain an AHBC membership ($50pa). This will help us to provide an EV service for you and other EV owners.

Connection : Currently only type 1 (5 Pin). However with the rapid move towards Type 2 connections the Woodside unit will be upgraded in Mid 2020 allowing car owners to connect using their own charge cable.

Access : 24/7 and located at Centre's carpark. Just pull up near the EV charger and plug in. It has a long power lead and It's ready to go when you are.

Location : Located at 82 Onkaparinga Valley Road, Woodside. 5244 SA (map)

If a vehicle is blocking access, just enter the centre and ask nicely if the person parked next to the charger could relocate their vehicle.

Background

Australia runs well behind the rest of the world when it comes to EV. However EV's are growing (electric cars and bikes) in Australia along with public charging stations.

The EV charger located at Woodside was fully funded by the Adelaide Hills Business Centre (Private organisation) with no government assistance. The centre has a keen focus on renewable resources and associated technology through our Hacksaw (Cutting Through Technology) programs.

The outer Adelaide regions provide very little in the way of charging points. However our members, guest and the general public traveling through the Hills regions can now access a 7.2kW, Level 2 Electric Vehicle charge Unit located in the Adelaide Hills Business Centre car park.

With the centre's co-work space, shops and bakery nearby, a short stop will ensure your vehicle is charged to travel further afield.

For now the charger will be available to members and the general public at no cost. The majority of the power will be delivered from our solar surplus power system.

So good news for those with electric vehicles and our environment.
