ELECTRIC cars can now re-charge in the centre of Ararat.
The Ararat Rural City Council installed a recharge facility next to the library in the car park on Queen Street.
Ararat Rural City Council CEO Dr Tim Harrison said the charge station, which is free to use, was donated to Council by Tesla, which was rolling out charging stations nation wide.
"Council is rapt that our municipality now has an electric car charge station, and we thank Tesla for donating the equipment," he said.
Ararat Rural City Council paid for the installation of the unit and will cover the cost of electricity charges as people charge their cars.
Telsa will advertise the car charging point on their website, which electric car drivers use to plan their trips.
