NSW EV Kerbside Charging Grant

The NSW Government will make $10 million in funding available to provide co-funding for eligible applicants to install, own, operate and maintain kerbside EV charging infrastructure in eligible LGAs that were assessed as having limited off-street parking for their population density.

EV Kerbside Charging Grant NSW

The NSW Electric Vehicle Strategy is to invest $10 million into co-funding public, kerbside EV charging infrastructure, with multiple funding rounds between 2023 & 2026. This infrastructure is to be delivered in residential areas where private, off-street parking is limited

Almost 30% of drivers in NSW do not have access to off-street parking to charge an EV. The provision of strategically located kerbside charging infrastructure will give these drivers confidence that their charging needs can be met and that an EV is a suitable and well-supported purchase

The Grant allows councils and local destinations access to considerable funding for AC Hardware, Software & Installation services.

EVSE is proud to be recognised as an approved turnkey solutions provider for this large-scale EV Charging program. We can guide you through the process step-by-step, to ensure that you make the best decision for your regional centre.
