NSW Grant

NSW electric vehicle public charger grants available for regional businesses


Attract more customers by installing electric vehicle public chargers on your site with up to $40,000 from the NSW government

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 electric vehicle (EV) public chargers on site are more likely to draw more customers as they’ll need somewhere to charge their electric vehicles while travelling.

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.


EV infrastructure and rebates are encouraging more drivers to go electric

There’s a move to electric vehicles (EVs) with the NSW Electric Vehicle Strategy aiming to increase EV sales to 52 per cent of all new car sales by 2030-31 and the majority by 2035.

Funding under the strategy also includes a $131 million investment for ultra-fast charging infrastructure and a $20 million investment in EV charging in commuter car parks, creating a world-class charging network across the state.

To support this, NSW EV drivers have been getting $5,540 off the cost of new electric vehicles using the $3,000 NSW ev rebate and an ev stamp duty exemption.

Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Sam Farraway said a series of EV tourist drives would also be developed across the state to promote EV travel across regional NSW, following the rollout of the EV chargers.

“This will grow local economies and support small businesses in areas impacted by Covid, bushfires and floods,” Mr Farraway said in the media release launching the NSW electric vehicle charging grant.

Get up to $40,000 for installing electric vehicle chargers    

The NSW government wants to help your business with the costs of doing this. But only for a short time. They’re offering $2000 to $40,000 for EV chargers through electric vehicle destination charging grants.

When can you apply for the NSW electric vehicle charging grants?     

Round one will be open for 4 months from Monday 23 May 2022 to Friday 23 September 2022. There will be multiple funding rounds through to 2024.
