Review of the EV Grant Scheme for NT

This grant scheme, though being promoted as new, is actually an extension of an existing program. While the funding for residential properties remains quite generous at $1,000, the $2,500 grant for businesses might not cover the full costs associated with installing EV charging infrastructure, particularly for larger or more complex setups.

Nevertheless, this grant presents a valuable opportunity for both homeowners and businesses to support the transition to electric vehicles, reducing their carbon footprint and contributing to a greener future.
