Quick charging plugs for electric vehicles at Forest Glen

With the construction of two charging bays here on the Sunshine Coast, fueling Queensland’s electric car mega highway has never been simpler. This revolutionary charging bay center is conveniently available off the Bruce Highway at the Forest Glen, plugging a crucial void in the state’s mega highway from the Coolangatta in the south, north as Cairns, as well as out to Toowoomba. Divisional Councillor Ted Hungerford stated winning the facility was a big coup for our area and provided the Sunshine Coast Council with the ability to provide our city with various economic, social, and environmental gains.

“This new charging point reaffirms itself as a critical destination in a sole state or even region, extending over 1,782km, all along longest electric vehicle superhighway of the world,” Cr Hungerford added. “The Forest Glen electric vehicle facility offers two charging stations with a quick AC charger as well as a DC charger. For starters, for as little as 20 minutes, you can charge up your electric car with an AC charger to provide a further 350 kilometers of range-now that is indeed electric!” The electric car chargers at the Forest Glen were supplied as a component of Stage 2 of Queensland Electric Super Highway by the Sunshine Coast Council in cooperation with the Queensland Government (QESH).

QESH pushed the Sunshine Coast a step closer to being a stable, intelligent, and innovative area, Cr Hungerford stated. Cr Hungerford added, “The EV facilities use renewable energy, allowing them an alternative for carbon-neutral as well as pollutant-free travel, which is becoming incredibly prevalent across the state as well as Australia. Latest estimates published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics indicate that with over 14,2053 electric cars recorded as of May 2020, the number of electric automobiles in Australia has nearly doubled from the previous year (2019).

It highlights how essential it is for municipal municipalities to ensure that energy-efficient alternatives, such as these charging points, are made freely available to the community to facilitate uninhibited, long-distance travel through the state and locally. “These chargers will motivate travelers to stop at the Forest Glen, extend their legs, and also have a coffee or even a meal at one of the local firms, all while trying to charge for their vehicle.” The charging facility is situated along Forest Glen’s Mons Road.
