Australian Winery Lets EV Drivers Drink While Charging Their Cars

By Brian Spaen

While electric vehicles come up with a lot of perks, one aspect of driving them continues to be time-consuming: charging them up. Most drivers are familiar with the time it takes to fuel up a standard car, and the few minutes you might spend in a convenience store or gas station to grab a quick snack while you refuel, but it's harder to imagine spending 30 minutes inside a grab-and-go place while your EV charges up. This common quandary got people thinking: Is there a way to make charging your EV a pleasurable, relaxing experience? If you're in the vicinity of Moores Hill Winery in Australia, the answer is a resounding yes. 

Moores Hill Winery is 100 percent sustainable, from solar roof panels to reusing their water. Completed last February, there are 100 solar panels on the top of the establishment that generates 30 kilowatts of energy. In order to keep electricity flowing at all times, they’ve added 81 kilowatt-hours of battery storage. The entire winery runs on a closed-loop waste management system. Surplus power is given to people that stop by when they need it.
