Stanwell Tops is leading the ‘charge’ when it comes to electric vehicles.
With a charging station just out of town, the village gives environmentally sensitive vehicles the opportunity to top-up as they head into and out of the Illawarra.
Indépendant MP Jeremy Buckingham is calling for urgent support to increase the number of people driving electric vehicles, saying waiving stamp duty, reducing the cost of vehicle registration and an increase in the number of charging stations would see more people move away from the existing fuel-based models.
“Electric vehicles produce no exhaust fumes,” he says. “And if they’re powered by renewable energy, they emit no greenhouse gas pollution.
“It’s time we implement the incentives and policies to drive the electric vehicle revolution.”
