The City of Greater Geelong has welcomed the first electric passenger vehicle to its fleet.

It comes as the City last year pledged to meet a net-zero fleet within five years.

Extra 22.5kW chargers were installed at the City’s Belmont and Corio depots after receiving a $48,000 State Government Grant in August.



Councillor Stephanie Asher, Chair of the Sustainability Performance portfolio, thanked the Labor Government for its support in helping the City embrace sustainable transport and cleaner fuels.

“Council is investing in more electric vehicle charging technology, to help meet the demands of our growing carbon-neutral fleet. We want to transition our light fleet to net zero within five years, and encourage the community to increase its use of EVs.”

“Driving down our carbon footprint has a range of environmental and economic benefits. It also leads our community towards a more sustainable future, where we are a zero-emissions, climate ready region that is well placed to deal with future challenges.”
