Energy Efficiency & Conservation Authority (EECA) has announced that its latest round of Low Emission Transport (LET) funding is now open for applications.
The ‘LET: Public EV Charging’ RFP is open to all organisations capable of delivering EV charger hubs. EECA states that a ‘hub’ can be a single site with many fast chargers, or multiple sites providing significant numbers of fast chargers in an area.
The Authority is looking to invest in charging hubs in highly visible locations near the highway network and states that they should be built in close proximity to customer services such as cafeterias/food outlets and toilets. It also says they should be accessible to EV drivers with multiple payment options.
This new opportunity builds on the announcement last week of the first batch of public charging hubs to receive co-funding from the LET fund.
By co-funding public EV charging projects, EECA aims to increase the convenience and availability of infrastructure in New Zealand to help meet and get ahead of demand.
Applications for the ‘LET: Public EV Charging’ fund are open here until 12 pm, 15 November 2023.
