frequently asked questions

QESH: Phase 3

What type of chargers are at the EV charging sites?

The charging sites built in Phase 1 & 2 (primarily along the coast) have a 22kWh alternating current (AC) charger and a 50kW direct current (DC charger). The charging sites built in Phase 3 will have a 22kWh AC charger and a 75kW DC charger.

How long will it take to charge my EV?
  • Actual charging times will vary – EV charging is always dynamic and variable to the type of vehicle/s being charged.
  • Typically, the 75kW Fast DC Chargers are expected to provide up to 80% charge for most vehicles in under 1 hour*, this will depend on the vehicle manufacturers charging specifications.

charging rates are a generalisation, and subject to environmental conditions, as well as vehicle types.

What kind of plugs are at the EV charging sites?

The 55kW and 75kW DC chargers feature CHAdeMO and CCS Combo Type 2 plug types, compatible with most electric vehicles.

The 22kW AC charger has two of the Type 2 Mennekes sockets that require a BYO charging cable to retain maximum compatibility with all vehicle types.

How will the new sites be powered?

The QESH fast charging infrastructure sources electricity from green energy and offsets, our intention is to power all sites with renewable power where possible.

How much will it cost to charge my EV?

As at 1 March 2024, the cost to charge your vehicle at any QESH site is $0.30c/kWh for 22kW AC charging; and $0.55c/kWh for the 50/75kW DC Fast Charging stations. The actual amount will vary depending on the amount of charge required for your vehicle.

QESH charging sites are made available to communities as a public service and Yurika does not make a profit from the network. These rates remain one of the lowest rates in Australia for public fast charging, with funds used for ongoing maintenance and ensuring the availability of the chargers.

  • All sites will be maintained annually, and supported by 24/7 remote monitoring, to ensure round-the-clock accessibility.

Will I be fined if I park my non-EVs in a dedicated EV charging spot?

Taking effect from 4 February 2022, the Queensland Government have adopted a law which changes permits for Local Governments and Queensland Police Service to issue penalties to vehicles unlawfully stopped in EV charging stations and parking lots.

You can read more about this law in the Australia Road Rules – Section 203c (QLD Road Rules). It has been amended to highlight the rules for vehicles stopping in dedicated parking areas for electric-powered vehicle.
