How NSW Owner-Corporations Can Benefit from the EV-Ready Buildings Grant.

The NSW Government has recognised the need to invest in the future of electric vehicles (EVs). As part of their commitment to sustainability and innovation, they offer a generous grant to retrofit existing apartment buildings, making them EV-ready.

The application comes in 2 stages:
Stage 1 – Feasibility Assessment:
The grant will subsidize this assessment, with the applicant’s cost set at $2,000 ex-GST, while the NSW Government covers the rest of the fee.

Stage 2 – Infrastructure Upgrades
The grant co-funds 80% of eligible infrastructure costs, up to $80,000 per building at this stage. Additionally, it covers 50% of eligible software subscription costs for two years, up to $1,200 per building.

Selection criteria:
-The building must have private and/or common property visitor (or shared) off-street common property parking.
-No more than 4 EV chargers should already be installed.
-Confirmation that EV chargers will be appropriately operated and maintained.
-Proof of sufficient funds to complete the works.
