Central Coast

I live on the Central Coast, and recenlty (4 months ago) took delivery of a Tesla M3 SR+. I guess I’m lucky that we have a Tesla Supercharger in Tuggerah, but I do feel there’s a serious lack of public chargers on the Central Coast (of NSW). Most are Tesla destination chargers at motels and Airbnbs. There’s a Tesla destination charger at Erina Fair which is great for Tesla drivers (like me), but not so much for anyone else.

Not sure how Lake Macquarie did it, but they as a council have a bunch of Hyundai Ioniq EVs (the original ones) and a solar covered charging plaza. Swansea Library has an Everty public charger that I on occasion use when passing through. The Hunter Valley has a fabulous NRMA double fast charger, which is still free to use. How can we get Central Coast to follow suite? Gosfort as a commercial centre could use a fast charger. The Entrance as a holiday destination could use one.

I’ve send some emails to some shopping centres around here, but mosty don’t get any response back. How can we as a community get this [moving forward]? The NSW Government is looking for locations and published this prospective ? That’s why I created some sort of a template to use, which you can find here , that you can use as a basis to nudge your local council, shopping centre, library, … to look at installing an EV charger.
