EV Destination Charging Grants
Unlock the Potential of EV Destination Charging with Drive Electric NSW Grants
The Drive Electric NSW EV Destination Charging Grants aim to significantly enhance the electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure across New South Wales, making it easier and more convenient for EV drivers to find charging stations at key tourist destinations. This initiative, part of the NSW Government's commitment to reduce carbon emissions and support sustainable transportation, offers financial assistance to eligible businesses and organisations for installing EV charging stations. By participating, you're not just contributing to a greener future but also attracting a growing market of EV drivers to your destination.
The grants provide co-funding for the purchase and installation of EV chargers at eligible destinations throughout regional NSW. This initiative supports the NSW Government's goal to make NSW the best place to buy and operate an EV.
To qualify, applicants must meet specific site, applicant, and application requirements, including being located within certain Local Government Areas (LGAs) and having a live listing on the Australian Tourism Data Warehouse (ATDW). Eligible destinations span a wide range, from accommodation and attractions to food and drink venues.
A total of $10 million is allocated for Round 2, covering up to 75% of the cost for eligible 7kW and 22kW EV chargers and installation, with a cap on funding amounts. The grants also offer support for the first year of an annual EV charger software subscription.
Applying for the grants is straightforward. Eligible businesses must submit their application online, including detailed quotes for EV charger hardware, installation, and software subscription costs. It's important to ensure all eligibility criteria are met to avoid disqualification.
