In 2016, MainPower installed Rangiora's first public recharging station for electric vehicles (EVs) at our Fernside Road site. Initially the "standard" JuicePoint Charger (Elektrobay 250) was intended to be used to charge our Nissan LEAF, but we decided to open it to the public during business hours (8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.) as well. We've seen a number of EVs pass through, topping up their vehicles.
Our charger is located near the front entrance to the main building at 172 Fernside Road. The "standard" charger charges a vehicle at an approximate rate of 25 km/ph. If you do visit our site to recharge you electric vehicle, please make sure you sign in at Reception.
