EV Charger Demand for Australia
The EV charger demand for Australia is on the rise! The Government has been providing incentives to residents purching electrical vehicles. The demand for charger installations is getting higher and higher every month. In May 2022, the NSW government had promoted a $20 million grants for EV charging to drive regional tourism. More and more companies are getting into the EV related businesses to support the boom.
EV charging involves high current, hence safety is an important measure when it comes to installing a charger at home or at your business. The EV charging process converts AC to DC, hence storing the energy on your car battery. The standard RCCB is not good enough preventing you from electricution. You will need to have a qualified installer to check on your charger’s specification, hence installing a right type of RCD for safety reasons.
To determine a right type of charger to be installed, you will need to check with your qualified electrician on whether your home circuit is on a single phase circuit or on a 3-phase circuit. The electrician can examine your meter box to determine the circuit type of your home or business.
The installation cost depends on the locations of your EV charger and your meter box. The greater the distance, the higher the installation cost as a result. Also, an installation on a 3-phase circuit will be more expensive than an installation on a single-phase circuit. It will add to the cost if wiring between your meter box and the charger becomes a challenge to your electrician.
