ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING NOW AT WESTPOINT

First EV charging stations in Blacktown CBD
WESTPOINT Blacktown has announced the installation of two state-of-the-art electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in the centre’s carpark.
 
Each EV charging station can charge six cars simultaneously, two Tesla vehicles and four other electric vehicles, delivering up to 7.4kW and 50 km of charge per hour.
 
Agata Rynkiewicz, Westpoint Centre Manager, said the installation of the EV technology, in partnership with Chargefox, was a major advance for the centre and another forward-thinking initiative for the community.
 
“The new charging stations at Westpoint, the first in the Blacktown CBD, revolutionise the EV public charging experience, connecting Australian drivers with efficient, clean fuel for theirvehicles,” Ms Rynkiewicz said.
 
“The charging stations include a total of 16 designated charging bays, with facilities for fourTesla and eight other electric vehicles at any one time.”
 
The new EV stations are located on levels 2 and 3 of the car park, and are accessible via the Balmoral and Alpha Street entries, providing a valuable service and enhancing the centre’s environmental credentials.
 
“It is important to me that our centre contributes to our community as much as we can, in asmany ways as we can, to help make the Blacktown area even better than it is already,” MsRynkiewicz said.
 
“We have also recently undertaken a number of other initiatives to enhance our car park, including a beautification program to enhance the lighting and ambience, and installationof park assist technology to help customers find a parking space more easily.
 
“The final element, a new parking guidance system, will soon be completed, assistingcustomers to move between levels based on the number of parking spaces available, helpingto cut down queuing and waiting times in the carpark.
 
“Our goal is always to enhance the customer journey. These new facilities will help us tofuture-proof our centre and ensure we not only meet but exceed customer expectations.”
 
The new electric vehicle charging stations will be available for use from Wednesday, May 19.
