13 March, 2012 – Electric car drivers heading for the centre of Canberra can now park their car and charge up their battery at the Novotel Canberra following the installation of two new public charge spots by Better Place.

Guests staying at the Novotel Canberra can charge for free while their car is parked, and visitors can also access free charging via the paid valet parking available at the hotel.

The charge spots deliver between 20 – 25 kilometres of range per hour of charging.

Better Place now has a total of 14 charge spots installed in and around Canberra; with 94 charge spots installed nationally.
