People with electric bikes will soon be able to charge them in Claris thanks to a Locky-dock EV bike charging station at the local board office.
The board-funded charging station will be solar-powered and available for three days each week from March.
Aotea / Great Barrier Local Board Chair Izzy Fordham said: “People have told us they’d like easier access to charging stations. With more people wanting to get around on electric bikes, it’s important we start to invest in the infrastructure to support them.”
Izzy says the local board is increasingly focused on the transition towards alternative energy and is committed to improving EV transport options across the island.
Auckland Council provided top-up funding for the project.
