As leaders in commercial EV charger installation, we offer state-of-the-art solutions with public charging, fleet charging, and DC charging that cater to businesses of all sizes across Sydney and beyond. 

The rise in EV ownership from major automobile companies like Tesla, BYD, Volvo, MG, Polestar, and Kia has been meteoric, driven by global environmental concerns and advances in EV technology. As a result, commercial properties are now required more than ever to provide efficient EV charging solutions.

We offer an assortment of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) solutions to cater to different needs. For businesses, shopping centres, and car parks to strata apartments. Our portfolio comprises fast-charging, ultra-fast charging, and intelligent charging stations, each with unique features tailored for various commercial applications.

Benefits of Installing a Commercial EV Charging Station

Investing in commercial EV charger installation in Sydney brings a multitude of benefits to businesses. Here are some advantages worth considering:

  • Attracting Customers: Offering EV charging services helps attract and retain EV owners, positioning your business as environmentally conscious and forward-thinking.
  • Increasing Revenue: Charging station users often spend time and money at nearby businesses while waiting for their vehicles to charge, generating additional revenue opportunities.
  • Brand Image and Differentiation: By having electric vehicle charging, you can differentiate your business from competitors and enhance your brand image as a sustainability leader.
  • Future-Proofing: Investing in EV charging infrastructure prepares your business for the future as the adoption of electric vehicles continues to rise.
  • Collaboration Opportunities: Installing EV chargers opens up collaboration opportunities with other businesses and government initiatives focused on sustainable mobility.
  • Improving The Valuation Of Your Building: Modernising a building’s electrical facilities, services, and equipment can increase its value and attract tenants. 
  • Employee Retention: Providing electric car charging stations to employees who own or are considering purchasing an electric vehicle can increase employee retention. 

Choosing the Right Commercial Electric Vehicle Chargers

Selecting the right electric car chargers is crucial for a successful installation. With a wide range of suppliers and options available in the market, it’s essential to choose chargers that align with your business requirements. Consider the following factors when making your selection:

  • Charging Speed: Assess the charging speed options available, such as Level 2 chargers (AC) or DC fast chargers, depending on the needs of your customers.
  • Connector Types: Determine the types of connectors compatible with popular EV models to accommodate a wide range of vehicles.
  • Scalability: Choose chargers that allow for future expansion and scalability as the demand for EV charging increases.
  • Durability and Weather Resistance: Opt for chargers that are durable and weather-resistant to withstand outdoor conditions in Sydney’s varying climate.

Evaluating Payment Options for Charging Electric Cars

The primary method of payment or billing for EV charging in buildings is usage-based (kWh-based) electricity consumption billing.  Here are some common ways you may want to structure your commercial charging.

No usage fee: It may not be possible to measure usage, or billing administration may not be cost-effective. This may be suitable for locations with a limited number of parking spaces and low anticipated EV uptake. 

Flat fee: The calculation of a usage fee is complicated and may not involve significant sums of money, so a flat fee (such as $1 per day) may suffice. 

Use existing meter: When the EV charging equipment is connected to the existing tenant metre for the floor space, any additional usage charges are automatically added to the tenant’s bill. 

Outsourced or ‘turnkey’: For an ongoing fee, many EV operators offer a turnkey solution that includes billing and cost recovery. We can assist with this.

Commercial EV Charger Installation Process – Turnkey Solution

Once we have determined the suitable chargers for your business, it’s time to proceed with the installation process. We provide a turn-key approach from start to finish, handling the whole process so you can sit back and relax. The commercial EV charger installation process typically involves the following steps:

  1. Site Assessment: Our experts conduct a thorough assessment of your location to identify the optimal placement of chargers and ensure compliance with safety regulations.
  2. Electrical Upgrades: If necessary, electrical upgrades may be required to accommodate the additional power load of the charging infrastructure. Critical elements to assess include existing circuit breaker sizes, energy usage patterns, historical peak energy loads, and if you have the electrical capacity to accommodate electric vehicle chargers.
  3. Permitting and Approvals: Obtain the necessary permits and approvals from local authorities or councils to comply with building codes and regulations.
  4. Grant Submission: We will apply for all the NSW Govt grants you are entitled to and inform you of the rebates. We will go through an application checklist with you and then fill out the required grant application on your behalf.
  5. Installation and Wiring: Skilled electricians install the charging stations and connect them to the electrical grid, ensuring proper grounding and electrical safety.
  6. Network Setup: Configure the network and software systems required for remote monitoring, billing, and customer management.
  7. Testing and Commissioning: Conduct thorough testing and commissioning to ensure the chargers are functioning optimally and ready for public use.
  8. Government Rebate: Provide the final documentation to receive your grant payment. This must be done within the 4-months installation time frame.

Yes, businesses have the option to offer free charging as a perk for their customers. However, it’s important to consider the impact on your electricity costs and ensure that free charging aligns with your business goals and profitability.

The charging time for an electric vehicle depends on various factors, including the battery capacity, the charger’s power output, and the vehicle’s charging capabilities. Typically, a Level 2 charger can fully charge a vehicle in 4 to 8 hours, while DC fast chargers can provide an 80% charge in as little as 30 minutes.

Yes, it is possible to install EV chargers and charge points in a parking garage. However, it’s important to consider the electrical infrastructure of the garage and consult with our commercial EV charger installers to ensure proper installation and compliance with safety regulations.

Installing EV chargers in remote locations with limited access to the electrical grid is possible. In such cases, alternative energy sources like solar power or generators can be used to supply electricity to the charging stations. Off-grid solutions can be customized to meet the specific needs of remote locations.

Yes, commercial grade EV stations can support multiple vehicles charging simultaneously, depending on the charger’s power capacity and the electrical infrastructure of the location. It’s important to consider the power requirements of each charger and ensure that the electrical system can handle the load.

Yes, the NSW government is jumping on the bandwagon with a variety of incentives to encourage the use of EVs and the installation of charging stations.

They have invested $20 million to co-fund the purchase and installation of electric vehicle (EV) chargers at eligible regional NSW destinations.

The grants will fund the following for up to 4 EV chargers per site:

  • 75% towards the cost of an eligible 7 kW and/or 22 kW electric vehicle charger(s)  
  • 75% towards the cost of installation (capped at $1,000 per charger)  
  • 50% towards a 2-year EV charger software subscription from the EV charger software list.

To be eligible, you must be:
