The Mayor of Osorno, Emeterio Carrillo, explained that this is a public electric charger that is at the service of the community and all those who have acquired an electric vehicle.

“It is an important advance, since Osorno has high pollution indexes and any advance we have in that aspect will always be relevant for our commune”, he emphasized.

Meanwhile, the Seremi of Energy of Los Lagos, Liliana Alarcón, stressed that they will continue to support the challenge of moving towards a zero-emission public transport.

“Progress has been made in Osorno, Puerto Montt and Castro with these fast chargers for electric vehicles, with a cost that fluctuates between 12 and 14 thousand pesos, for an autonomy of 300/400 kilometers“, she said.

According to an official statement from the Chilean Ministry of Energy, the +Carga Rápida project is being carried out thanks to German development cooperation, implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK), with funds from the International Climate Initiative (IKI) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
