It is on track to fulfilling its promise to have 200 electric fleet vehicles by 2030.
Forty six charging points and 62 charging stations have been installed in Government-leased buildings across Darwin, Katherine and Alice Springs.
By leading the way and providing certainty for investments in EV uptake, the Government aims to accelerate the transition to electric vehicles in the Territory.
The Government has reduced registration and stamp duty fees for plug-in EVs and introduced the Electric Vehicle Charger (Residential and Business) Grant Scheme.
The NT Government’s EV Charger Grant Scheme is still running and funding is available for both Territorians and Territory businesses.
To date, $300,000 has been allocated, which includes 100 residential grants of $1000 and 80 business grants of $2500 for the purchase and installation of EV chargers.
NT Renewables and Energy Minister Nicole Manison says: “The Territory Government is driving towards our goal of 50 per cent renewables by 2030.
“Our abundance of solar resources in the Territory allows us to work with all of our departments, parks and communities to reduce the impacts of climate change.
“Our Government is acting and will continue to transition to a lowcarbon future, we will continue to put more electric cars on the road, we will continue to reduce fees for low emission vehicles, and we will continue to roll out renewable energy right across the Territory.”
Territory Wildlife Park director Rob Hall says: “The Territory Wildlife Park is committed to a sustainable future and contributing to the national net zero targets.
“The purchase of an electric vehicle is a massive step in the right direction.
“With the associated installation of more clean energy-generating solar systems at the park and the importing of new and modern energy-efficient electric people movers to replace the park’s diesel trains, the Territory Wildlife Park is making significant strides in its commitment to a clean green future.”
