A vehicle for change
New Zealand’s early-adopters have been driving electric cars since 2010, when the first Nissan Leafs arrived from Japan. As successive waves of EV converts hit the roads, driving an EV is becoming as normal as making your toast with an electric toaster.
Electric mobility is the future
Our business is driven by a vision of the future that sees more and more electric vehicles on New Zealand’s roads. The fact that 80% of the electricity used in New Zealand comes from renewable energy – hydropower, geothermal power and wind power – makes driving an EV more logical here than in most other countries. We’re looking forward to the day when every second vehicle is an EV. That isn’t going to happen overnight; it will be a gradual change, hurried along by an ever-increasing choice of EV makes and models.
Established in 2016, Chargemaster is a New Zealand family-owned company. As a multi-generational enterprise, Chargemaster is here for the long haul. Our plan is to grow the business in a number of EV directions, as market needs become clear.
We believe electric mobility is the future. At Chargemaster we do things differently, we're on a mission to move transport towards electric. With over 50 years experience in the automotive industry, and a global network of suppliers, we have the capability to meet transport needs.
Before you buy an electric car charger for your home or business premises, we recommend a pre-purchase site check by a Laser Electrical technician to determine electricity capacity, best charger location, and general conditions for charger operating safety and convenience. If you decide to order a charging unit from Chargemaster, the cost of this site check ($155 inc GST) is deducted from the cost of your EV charger installation.
Laser Electrical’s expertise includes installing residential fast chargers, as well as commercial and industrial fast chargers. EV charger options include load management, remote invoicing and reporting capabilities, and credit card or phone app (public) access via the internet. Laser Electrical technicians can also handle VG (Vehicle to Grid) options, where the EV sends power to your house. All Laser Electrical work is guaranteed by their ‘Totally Dependable’ guarantee and fully compliant electrical certifications.
EV chargers require minimal maintenance, however an annual inspection is recommended as listed in WorkSafe NZ guidelines. Laser Electrical provide a 24/7 service for repairs.
