Residents of Aster apartments will be able to hire an electric vehicle by the hour thanks to a new partnership between developer Cedar Woods, Origin Energy and e-mobility and proptech company, Ohmie Go.

Belonging to the larger 6.5-hectare masterplanned Jackson Green community, Aster apartments will be one of two buildings that will home a Tesla Model 3 for resident hire, providing an eco-friendly transport option to residents.

Using the Ohmie Go app, the car can be picked up and paid for at an hourly, daily or weekend rate, for as little as $15 per hour.

This partnership comes as the Victorian Government announces hopes for half of all new cars sold to be zero-emission by 2030.

Cedar Woods chief operating officer Patrick Archer explained the influence of existing infrastructure on the decision to offer carshare in the community.

“Jackson Green is well serviced by public transport meaning car ownership is not always a necessary expense. We consider the needs of people in our communities and we believe that carshare services will bridge the gap between public transport and car ownership to add great value to the lives of Jackson Green residents”, Archer said.

The Tesla Model 3 will be partially subsidised by Origin Energy who has also partnered with Cedar Woods on its sold-out Huntington Apartments.

Huntington will deliver the most sustainable development to date in the Jackson Green masterplan, boasting a 40KW solar PV system to power common areas and communal electric vehicle chargers.

Kyle Bolto, Ohmie Go CEO and founder said the initiative will create a real alternative to traditional car ownership.

“This initiative will deliver sustainable mobility for the exclusive use of residents at Jackson Green’s Huntington and Aster apartments,” Bolto said.

"Fully managed, on-site e-mobility and its integration with the built-form is the inevitable progression for all new large-scale residential developments.”

Jackson Green will be the first residential development in Victoria to offer Ohmie Go.

Featuring 128 apartments across three buildings, Aster apartments in one, two and three-bedroom configurations are currently selling.
