EV Charger Installation Sydney
Calibre Connect are the experts with Sydney EV charger installation, and are ready to install whatever connector you may need, including the ever so popular Tesla wall charger installations.
Just as a traditionally powered automobile won’t start without gas in the tank, an electric vehicle won’t run without an adequate battery charge. While most drivers need to stop at a gas station for a fill-up, EV owners have numerous options for recharging their ride.
There are a growing number of public EV charging stations in Australia, both in residential areas and popular travel destinations for popular vehicles such as the Tesla. Some shopping centres, hotels, and tourist attractions and provide EV charging to customers who use their services.
Of course, the easiest way to charge your electric car is at home using an EV car charging station. Home EV car charging stations can provide up to 10x the power of a standard wall outlet. With an EV home charger, all you have to do is hook up your electric car and it will charge overnight while you sleep. An electric car charger installation makes pumping gas appear obsolete!
However, there are some key details involved in charging your EV at home you should be aware of.
Electricians for EV Home Car Charging Stations
An EV home station offers the convenience of plugging in your car at night and waking up with a fully charged vehicle.
EV home charging stations must be installed by an experienced, licensed electrician. Call Calibre Connect for assistance with your EV installation. One of our technicians will come to your home for an evaluation. They will assess your installation site and your home’s electrical specifications before working up a quote. We will also advise you on what type of EV charging unit is most suitable for your home and vehicle.
Home EV charging stations vary in ways that impact the functioning of your charger. Here are points to consider:
● plug type
● single- vs. three-phase electrical capability
● socketed vs. tethered cable
● solar charge
● software support
With so many options, it can be difficult for new EV owners to make a decision. Fortunately, Calibre Connect has experience installing every type of EV home charging station. We can help you make the best decision with your EV home charge installation.
Once you have chosen an EV charger, we will complete the EV charge home install. We will also provide instruction on the care and maintenance of your new home charging station. Our home charger installations are up to code per Australian regulations.
The Three Types of EV Chargers
Australia’s EV charging infrastructure primarily consists of three distinct types of chargers, each with their own unique set of features and maximum charge times:
Level 1 Chargers: These are the cheapest and slowest of the EV charger options and can be found mostly in residential areas. A level 1 charger can charge an electric vehicle at a rate of about 5 kilometres per hour from a standard 120-volt outlet.
Level 2 Chargers: These are an upgrade from Level 1 chargers, allowing for a faster charging rate of 10-40 kilometres per hour. The 240-volt outlets required by level 2 chargers are standard in most commercial and industrial settings as well as at public charging stations.
DC Fast Chargers: The most expensive and rapid chargers are direct current (DC) fast chargers, which can add up to 100 kilometres of range in just 30 minutes. DC fast chargers are available at highway rest areas, gas stations, and other public charging locations that have access to high-voltage power sources.

EV Charger FAQs
The length of time it takes to charge the battery of an electric vehicle (EV) can be influenced by several factors, such as the battery’s size, charging rate, and charger type. When using a Level 1 charger, the slowest charging option, it can take 8 to 20 hours to fully charge the battery, depending on its capacity. However, Level 2 chargers are faster and can charge the battery completely in 4 to 8 hours. For long-distance driving, Level 3 chargers, also known as DC fast chargers, are used as they can replenish up to 80% of an electric car’s battery in just 30 minutes.
Many electric cars are equipped with regenerative braking, which can recharge the battery while the vehicle is stopped. This feature can extend the electric car’s range and reduce the time required to recharge the battery. The time needed to fully charge the battery of an electric vehicle varies significantly between individual drivers and across different charging options. To determine how long it will take to charge your specific EV, consult the owner’s manual or contact the manufacturer.

While there are some free electric vehicle (EV) charging stations available, they may be few and far between, and not always accessible. Public charging stations at shopping centers, parking lots, and government buildings, for example, might be a source of free charging for your EV. It’s crucial to keep in mind, however, that the availability of free charging stations can vary widely depending on the location, so it’s a good idea to do some research and prepare accordingly for your charging needs.
Although many charging stations are subject to fees or require membership, some may offer free charging for a limited time or under specific circumstances. You can use online directories or applications that provide details about charging station locations, costs, or membership requirements. Also, consult with the manufacturer of your EV or local dealerships to discover charging options and incentives in your region.
While free charging stations may be available in some places, it’s important to consider the convenience and reliability of paid charging stations to ensure a consistent and rapid charging experience.
In Australia, the cost of installing an electric vehicle (EV) charger can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of charger, its location, and the electrical infrastructure at the installation site. Basic Level 1 EV chargers that can be plugged into a regular electrical outlet usually cost several hundred dollars, but they charge at a slow rate and might not be suitable for everyday use.
For rapid charging, Level 2 chargers are recommended, but they require professional installation and can cost several thousand dollars, depending on the brand and features of the charger. The cost of installing a Level 2 charger can also be affected by factors such as its distance from the electrical panel or whether it requires an upgrade.
It’s worth noting that various state and territory governments offer rebates and incentives that can help cover the cost of installing an EV charger. For instance, the New South Wales government provides a rebate of up to $1,000 for the purchase and installation of an EV charger in your home, while the Australian Capital Territory offers a rebate of up to $500. Consulting with a licensed electrician or EV charger installation expert is the best way to get a better understanding of how much it will cost to install an EV charger in your area.
When it comes to road user charges (or EV Tax), the NSW Government’s EV Strategy states that EV drivers will pay roughly half as much as those driving petrol or diesel vehicles. There will be savings even after accounting for the cheaper charging rates. Once electric vehicles account for 30% of all new vehicle sales, or July 1, 2027, whichever comes first, a new EV Tax or road user charge will be implemented (not vehicles on the road). Plug-in hybrids will be charged 80% of the standard cost incurred by gasoline-fueled vehicles, while EV owners will be charged 2.5 cents per kilometre. Based on the policies of the New South Wales government, the annual fuel excise for a petrol or diesel vehicle is about $622. Tolls for using roads will increase to about $315 annually for drivers of electric vehicles.
