Charging equipment for EVs is no longer an afterthought for Australian businesses.

In fact, industry experts suggest that EV needs are beginning to drive solar uptake and predict that EV- charging requirements could be responsible for around 30,000 new or upsized solar systems in 2023 alone.

For businesses looking for a reliable contractor to install EV charging equipment, solar businesses are the natural choice. They offer renewable-energy expertise, deep technical knowledge and the ability to include EV chargers as part of an integrated solar and storage system installation.
