Electric Vehicle Charging Grants

The Tasmanian Government is providing $450,000 in ChargeSmart funding

The ChargeSmart Grants Programs provide funding for Tasmanian organisations to install electric vehicle chargers for public use.

Fast Charging

Grants of up to $50,000 are now available for organisations towards the cost of purchasing and installing Direct Current (DC) electric vehicle fast charging stations. Fast chargers provide a high rate of charge and are installed where drivers need to recharge and get back on the road quickly. Fast Charging Grant applications close at 5.00pm on Friday 24 May 2019.

Destination Charging

Grants of up to $2,500 are now available for organisations towards the cost of purchasing and installing Alternating Current (AC) electric vehicle destination charging stations. Destination chargers are useful for locations where electric vehicle drivers stay for an hour or more, such as shopping centres, hotels, caravan parks, public car parks, restaurants and tourist attractions.

Destination Charging Grant applications close at 5.00pm on Friday 10 May 2019.

Who can apply?

Both grants programs are open to Tasmanian organisations that have a publicly available location for a charger. Eligible organisations include local government, for-profit and not-for-profit organisations and Tasmanian Government Agencies, Government Business Enterprises and State-Owned Companies.
