Vantage West Electrical, a leading commercial electrician based in Perth, Western Australia, is at the forefront of accelerating the use of #electric vehicle (EV) chargers by helping businesses across the state apply for the Western Australian Government’s Charge Up Workplace EV Charging Grants.
With Round 2 of the grants open from 4 November 2023 to 3 May 2024, Vantage West is committed to ensuring eligible businesses not only understand the opportunity but maximise their chances of securing a grant.
The WA Government is driving a brighter energy future by co-funding the cost of EV charging infrastructure. The grants make it easier and more cost effective for small to medium enterprises, not-for-profit organisations and local government authorities to install #EV charging equipment at their workplace.
With $12.5 million in funding support available, the grants aim to promote the spread of EV chargers by co-funding up to 50 percent of their costs, including hardware, software, and installation.
Vantage West aims to simplify a complex grant application process for their clients. As local experts when it comes to EV charger installations in Perth, Vantage West promises to guide applicants through each step, ensuring compliance with the grant’s criteria and maximising the chances of a successful application.
“Navigating government grants can be challenging,” said Henry Plunkett, Managing Director at Vantage West. “Our goal is to make this process as seamless as possible for our clients. By partnering with us, businesses can focus on their core operations while we take care of the entire application on their behalf, from selecting the right chargers to submitting the required documentation.”
Round 2 includes funding for faster direct current (DC) chargers up to 350kW, which are typically used in locations where rapid charging is beneficial, such as office or retail car parks.
Vantage West’s commitment doesn’t end once the application is submitted. They provide ongoing support, training, and technical assistance. This ensures businesses can not only acquire modern EV chargers but also understand and utilise them effectively.
“Our aim is to not just install chargers, but to equip our clients with the knowledge and support they need to transition smoothly to electric vehicle infrastructure in the long term,” added Mr Plunkett.
For businesses in Perth and across Western Australia looking to take advantage of this opportunity, Vantage West Electrical is ready to lead the charge.
