Installing a charging station

When you consider installing a private or public charging station there are a few – existing electricity usage, electricity connection capacity and future EV charging needs. An audit of your home or business will provide you with this information.

It is important to understand your future EV charging needs. You will need to consider the following:

  • How many chargers are you wanting to install?
  • How many EVs will be charging at your premises at any given time?
  • What type and size of the chargers are you wanting to install?

After having an audit performed, you may find there is sufficient existing capacity. In some cases, our offerings involve upgrading the existing connection capacity, or encompassing the use of Smart Chargers.

Anyone installing EV charging stations should comply with the New Zealand WorkSafe’s guidelines.

  • Under no circumstance may an individual install a charging station unless they are licensed and competent to do so.
  • Depending on the existing infrastructure, the installation may also require electrical works by a certified electrician or electrical engineer. A competent electrician or electrical engineer will be able to advise you on what is required.
  • EVSE products are required by law to comply with New Zealand’s Electrical Safety Regulations and Standards (IEC 61851-1 for AC and DC + IEC 61851-23 for DC).
