The EV Charging for Business Fleets (EVCBF) program has officially closed with $1.55 million in grant funding awarded to 14 Victorian organisations.

The program aims to support the transition of business fleets to EVs and help implement EV charging technology at business locations.

By September 2023, it is expected the program will have led to the installation of 58 electric vehicle private charging stations at 24 sites across Victoria.

“Approximately $1.55 million has been awarded to successful EVCBF projects. This includes over $727,000 in grant funding allocated across regional Victoria and over $827,000 across metropolitan Melbourne.

The EVCBF charger sizes range from 7 kilowatts – 60 kilowatts depending on the fleet characteristics, including demonstration of need, location, size of fleet, frequency of use and commitment to an EV transition plan,” outlined the Victorian Government’s Energy, Environment and climate action website.
