Watercare Services Limited and Schneider Electric drive commitment to EV initiatives

The last few years have seen an increasing trend in the adoption of electric vehicles across both the residential and commercial markets. Many fleet operators are reviewing their vehicles and seeing how electric powered cars can be part of their commitment to sustainability.

Schneider Electric is delighted to have supplied Watercare Services Limited with 27 EVLink charging stations which have been installed at their Newmarket office, Pukekohe, and Mangere Wastewater Treatment Plants. And, they’re not stopping there, with the installation of charging stations at their Rosedale site already underway. Over the last year, Watercare’s fleet has undergone a quiet revolution, growing from five electric vehicles to 30. Now, more than 33% of their passenger fleet is powered by electric.

Watercare fleet manager, Samantha Schofield says the new cars bring many benefits: “Typically, the old vehicles would use around 40,000 litres of fuel, costing us around $95,000 per year. EVs cost the equivalent of around 30 cents/litre to fully charge their battery (on slow charge), so we’ll be making significant savings on fuel costs and more importantly, from now we’ll be removing 45 tonnes of carbon dioxide from the environment - and that’s fantastic!”

Watercare is the first New Zealand company to install an EVLink load management system, which they chose to install due to load capacity limitations in their building. The alternate option would have been to install a new transformer – which would have been very costly. The load management system enables Watercare to dynamically manage and distribute the electrical capacity available to maximise charging of their fleet, while ensuring they get their fair share of charging power.
