NSW Government releases $10 Million EV Ready Buildings Grant

The New South Wales Government has launched a $10 million grant program to retrofit apartment buildings with electric vehicle (EV) charging technology. The landmark initiative is available to eligible Class 2 strata buildings across metropolitan and regional New South Wales.

Through the EV Ready Buildings Grant, the NSW Government will co-fund up to 80% of the cost of each building upgrade, to a maximum of $80,000. It will also support the purchase and installation of up to 4 shared-use chargers in visitor parking spots.

The grant will support strata to:

Identify a building’s current and future EV charging needs

Retrofit EV charging infrastructure including switchboards, distribution boards and cabling

Enable residents to easily install their own EV charger
