Introducing the WA Governments Charge Up Workplace Grants Program

Calling all businesses, local government authorities, and not-for-profit organisations in Western Australia!

An exciting opportunity has emerged courtesy of the WA Government. In its relentless pursuit to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs), the government is offering substantial grants to support the establishment of workplace EV charging infrastructure. With a remarkable $15 million in funding, the Charge Up Workplace Grants program aims to cover up to 50% of the costs associated with EV charger hardware, software, and installation.

Round 2 of the Charge Up Workplace Grants is now open, offering even faster charging options to meet the growing demand. This round includes direct current (DC) chargers capable of delivering up to a remarkable 350kW of power. By supporting the installation of cutting-edge charging technology, the WA Government aims to facilitate the widespread adoption of EVs and contribute to a greener future.


Eligibility and Application Process

From 4 November 2023, to 3 May 2024, small and medium businesses, not-for-profits registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission, and local government authorities can apply for grant funding support. With a total of $12.5 million available in this round, applicants have a tremendous opportunity to receive financial assistance for their EV charging projects.
