In March 2024, the first public electric vehicle (EV) chargers within the municipality were unveiled in Footscray.

Two fast chargers, powered by 100% renewable energy, were installed and there are plans to install more. The installation of these chargers will help support Council’s Climate Emergency Strategy to “facilitate and support electric vehicle charge points in new developments and across the municipality”. Details of these chargers can be found below:

Location: Raleigh Street Carpark, 38 Raleigh Street, Footscray
Number of charging bays: 4
Speed of chargers: Up to 150kW each (Note: Charging speeds will vary depending on number of cars sharing the chargers)

These chargers were installed by Evie Networks with funding support through the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA)'s Future Fuels Fund.

Council has entered an agreement with Evie Networks who will lease the car spaces for operation of their chargers. Users can download the Evie app from the App store or Google Play Store and create an account to use the chargers. Details of charging fees can be found on Evie’s website,
