Ngaire McGaw is a sustainability professional working in the health system. Ngaire and her family love their Nissan Leaf (2019) for its low running costs, front charge plug, surround camera view, e-pedal, safety features and responsiveness. Ngaire is voluntarily participating in a government-funded electric vehicle research project with Origin Energy. As part of this project, Ngaire acquired a $1 Schneider EVlink wall smart charger – it’s about four times faster than trickle charge from a 240 volt power point (delivering about 80 percent of Leaf battery capacity in around 30-60 minutes). Ngaire drives her Leaf to the Gold Coast and back to Brisbane on one charge. If she ever needs a charge away from home, Ngaire refers to the Plugshare App to locate charge points and uses a type 2 charge cable. For example, she has charged for free at Cricks Highway Renault at Springwood. Ngaire’s household subscribes to 100% renewable energy and has a 4.8 kilowatt solar system on her rooftop.
