Better Place announces its partners

By johnboy - 26 July 2011 4

Electric Car evangelists Better Place have announced their Charge Network Foundation Members:

    — the ACT Government,
    — the ACT Electric Vehicle Council,
    — ActewAGL,
    — Canberra Airport,
    — Capital Hotel Group,
    — CIC Australia,
    — Crowne Plaza,
    — Hindmarsh,
    — Lend Lease,
    — the National Convention Centre,
    — Rock Development Group,
    — TransACT

“Better Place has been actively working with three of our Foundation Members, the ACT Government, ActewAGL and Rock Development Group, for a number of years now. Adding nine of Canberra’s most recognisable brands to our stable of charge spot providers gives Canberra drivers the backbone of a comprehensive charge network across the ACT region which will continue to grow over time.

“Today’s announcement is the next step in the installation of Better Place’s full charge network in the region. It is the next step towards zero emissions driving in our nation’s capital, and the introduction of mainstream electric cars that will be affordable and convenient for Canberra drivers,” Mr Thornley said.

What’s Your opinion?

Talk about fairies at the bottom of the garden. Presumably, that will happen around the same time as zero waste.

These people just want everyone to leave so that they can sow the site with salt from the Murrumbidgee.

As a customer with no choice for some of these sponsors, I am not happy that they are using my forced contributions for this nonsense.

Agree 100% breda.
These dreamers must be getting high on ozone from electric motors. If the ACT was generating its own emission free electricity the project would have some credibility. The claim that only “green” electricity will be used is BS also. Next thing the ACT Greens will be building a 50 km high barrier around the ACT to keep out the emissions from the Hunter Valley coal fired power stations that charge the ZE toy cars so they can claim legitimacty.

I think it’s kind of good to see charge points going in. Looking forward to being able to afford to buy an EV.

Ha! Yes, the only way you’re going to get emissions down to zero in the ACT is by moving the population over the border to Quenbeyan, Bungendore, Murumbateman etc.

you could force people to leave the territory through increased taxes, very high land prices, restrictive regulations, limited investment in meaningful infrastructure, and so on. Removing the population would make room for more arboretums to soak up carbon dioxide and attracts tourists (who would arrive by hot air balloon, horseback, or a Better Place (TM) electric car). The ACT could then be declared the world’s first CO2-free jurisdiction, making it the envy of all green-thinking people everywhere.

But don’t tell the ACT government or Greens government, as they may well make this their policy … (or has this been their thinking all along?)
