The NSW Government has initiated a $10 million funding program to retrofit Class 2 strata buildings, both in metropolitan and regional areas, with electric vehicle (EV) charging facilities.
The EV Ready Buildings Grant by the NSW Government offers to cover up to 80% of building upgrade costs, with a cap of $80,000, and includes funding for up to four shared-use chargers in visitor parking areas.
This funding assists strata in:
- Assessing a building’s present and future requirements for EV charging
- Upgrading EV charging infrastructure, encompassing switchboards, distribution boards, and wiring.
- Facilitating the installation of individual EV chargers for residents.
