Cafe serves powerful car refreshment

Motorists can now charge their electric cars while recharging with a coffee in Stirling.

Sustainability, Environment and Conservation Minister Paul Caica, Stirling Organic Market and Cafe owner Grahame Murray and ChargePoint chief executive James Brown launch the new electric car charging station at Stirling.

The first charging station outside of Adelaide was launched at the Stirling Organic Market and Cafe last week.
It follows the recent release of Mitsubishi’s electric car, the i-MiEV, and comes as Nissan and Holden both plan to roll-out new electric vehicles this year.
The Hills charge points will suit all makes of electric cars and draw energy from green power sources such as solar and wind.
Cafe owner Grahame Murray was inspired to have the recharge station installed after seeing similar services provided by businesses overseas.
“It gave me a real thought that this would be something fantastic to have here,” he said.
