Only approved EV chargers can be co-funded under the grants. The full list of these chargers is located on the EV Council website .
Each charger on the list meets a series of minimum requirements set by the grants including safety, robustness, and smart capabilities. Some chargers can be wall-mounted, whilst others sit on a pedestal.
The retail price of each EV charger on the list varies by supplier, and some suppliers offer the same charger at different price points. The 75% co-funding for each EV charger will be capped at the price for that charger on the approved EV charger list.
It is the responsibility of each applicant to research and select the EV charger(s) that best suits their needs, existing site electrical infrastructure, and budget. The cost to install an EV charger varies depending on the site layout, parking space location and charger configuration. Before applying, applicants are encouraged to speak to a licensed electrical contractor to fully understand all estimated costs and obtain a commercial quote.
Ongoing costs for software subscriptions will vary. Some suppliers require an annual subscription fee per charger while others charge annually per charge port. Please discuss your requirements with software providers and understand pricing before making a selection.
While every installation is unique, the 75% installation co-funding contribution (capped at $1000 per EV charger) can cover the cost of installing electrical circuits and data cabling, upgrading the site’s electrical infrastructure, and installing and commissioning the chargers.
