Australian company JET Charge selected to deliver world’s longest continuous EV fast-charging network


The Western Australian Government has contracted electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure company JET Charge to provide 98 EV chargers at 49 locations around the State, creating the world’s longest continuously connected electric highway.

The $4.1 million project will extend WA’s EV fast-charging network to more than 6,600 kilometres, stretching from Kununurra in the north, to Esperance in the south, and east to Eucla.

Premier Mark McGowan said each location will have both a standard and fast charger, with the fast chargers to allow drivers to top up their EVs in as little as 15 minutes.

“WA’s EV fast charging network is an important step to boost our uptake of electric vehicles, enabling drivers to travel the vast distances around the State more easily,” Mr McGowan continued.

“This will help to reduce carbon emissions, as WA transitions to net zero by 2050.

“When completed, WA’s EV fast charging network will be the world’s longest of its kind – with construction well underway and expected to be completed by early 2024.”

JET Charge is a market leader in installing and sourcing high-quality chargers and hardware to support and accelerate the growth of EVs.

Chief Executive Officer Tim Washington said the company was founded almost a decade ago to accelerate the transition to low emissions vehicles in Australia by breaking down the barriers to electric vehicle charging.

“JET Charge are so proud to be involved with a landmark EV charging network that features a lot of Australian-made innovation, and will absolutely smash those barriers allowing people to drive EVs all over the great State of Western Australia,” he concluded.
