AURIGA EV Charger for public electric cars NSW Grant

From Friday 1 July the NT government is offering funds for you to buy and install an electric vehicle (EV) charger at your home or business.

The Electric Vehicle Charger (Residential and Business) Grant Scheme offers:

  • Up to $1,000 for a residential property
  • Up to $2,500 for a business

The grants will be given on a first-come, first-served basis so it’s great that you’re here and can prepare your application early.

The information on this page will help you understand more about EV chargers so you can decide if they’re worthwhile for your home or business.

Find out if you’re eligible, how to apply, and what happens after you apply.

Why the NT government is giving out EV charging grants

Australia is moving toward electric vehicles over traditional gas and diesel vehicles (known as internal combustion engine, or ICE vehicles).

The grant is the government’s effort to help more people switch to electric vehicles.

The long-lasting benefit for all NT residents is we’re paving the way for a cleaner world for ourselves, our kids, and our grandkids.

Not just that, if we don’t do something to respond to our changing climate, we’ll have trouble securing water, put our health at risk, face job insecurity, and more.

This grant is part of the Territory Climate Change Response which includes you, your family, your mates, and your colleagues taking action as a community.

Together you can protect the Territory and enjoy the opportunities a better environment will give us.

Why install electric vehicle chargers at your home

There’s nothing worse than being out and having your mobile phone die. It’s frustrating and stressful asking around for cables and charging points to juice up again.

Well, imagine if your EV battery is empty when you hit the road…

Like charging your phone before heading out, having an EV charger at home is convenient and gives you that peace of mind that your EV is fully juiced up when you head out.

Why install electric vehicle (EV) chargers at your business

To keep current customers and attract new ones, you need to make it easy for them to travel to and from your business. Businesses who install EV public chargers on site are more likely to draw more customers as they’ll need somewhere to charge their electric vehicles while traveling. You see, electric vehicle drivers get what’s known as ‘range anxiety’ when their batteries are about to run out. Installing an electric vehicle public charger on your site means your customers stop and stay longer.

Happy customers

"Easy online purchase, good communications from EVolution. The 15A portable EVSE is a bargain at around $650, it charges the Zoe almost flat out until full. Have also purchased the Marvin 32A unit, again, great comms and service, definitely a great place to get EV gear."

- Mr T, Nissan LEAF

"Excellent product and service by the team at EVolution. We elected to get a quote for both the installation of a new PV solar system and a Zappi.

The quote came out pretty good and the installation went off without a hitch. Very happy with the outcome and the ability to charge my Tesla model 3 with my excess solar energy."

- Oscar, Tesla Model 3
