How much would it cost?

A report prepared in December 2018 by UWA for the WA State Government found a state-wide electric vehicle charging grid could be built for about $30 million.

The grid would cover all major highways across the whole state, provide at least two DC fast chargers at each location, be located not more than 200km apart, and enable EV charging in minutes.

The rollout of 25,000 charging stations at places of employment would cost between $14m-$82m per year over ten years (at current prices and depending on the use of single or multiport fast charger stations).
