Charge Up For The Electrical Vehicle


While sales of electric vehicles, or “EVs”, in Australia aren’t quite at the level of other countries, they’re growing fast. In fact, a State of Electric Vehicles Report (PDF) from August 2021 showed:

  • 8,688 EVs were sold in the first half of 2021. This equates to 2% of the total vehicle market – still a way off the global average of 4%.
  • There are 31 EV models for sale in Australia with largest segment being SUVs. And they’re not as expensive as you may think – with 14 EV models priced under $65,000.
  • There will be 58 EV models (all the major brands) for sale in Australia by the end of 2022.

By comparison, about 75% of all vehicles sold in Norway in 2020 were electric. Plenty of room for growth!

In NSW, the Government has introduced the Electric Vehicle Strategy, backed by $500m of investment to accelerate the uptake of electric vehicles. That means more demand for EV charging stations.

But where to turn and what are your options when it comes to EV installation? Read on to find out.

Why install an EV charging station?

As touched on, electric vehicles are becoming more commonplace in Australia – especially for those living in a major metropolitan area such as Sydney or Melbourne. So even if you’re not quite ready to get an EV in the short-term, having an EV charger installed makes sense to future-proof your home and lifestyle.

An EV charger can make a great investment and even increase the value of your property come time to sell. If you’re building your dream home and thinking about installation of an EV charger station, reach out to an electrical design expert, such as Vaccaro.

Thinking about getting an electric vehicle? What you need to know

When it comes to charging your EV, if you plug it into a standard power point in your home, you’ll be pulling power from the same source as the rest of your electronics. And since your EV must compete for power with the other devices in your home, charging times will be reduced.

Not only that, power supply to the rest of your home will be disrupted. And charging this way can be very expensive too, especially if you need to charge your car daily. All that money you’re saving on petrol you’ll be giving back in the form of higher electricity bills.

For a more energy efficient solution, and to get the fastest charging speeds, you’ll need to have a dedicated charging station for your EV. When you install an EV charging station, you’ll have a dedicated power circuit just for your car. By concentrating the electricity on a single output, you’ll get the fastest charging times possible from your home – without putting a strain on the rest of your electrical supply.

Vaccaro was the original electrical installer of my home. Their workmanship and materials were of excellent quality. They were extremely helpful, efficient and friendly whenever I asked for help. My special regards to Cameron for responding to my after-sales requests promptly and Robert for helping me resolve some technical issues and enhancing my understanding of the wiring system design.

Vaccaro was also the original air-conditioning installer of my home. Sonya and her teams were very polite and attentive and provided speedy responses to servicing requests. The technicians are well trained and equipped and as a result the refrigerant leak was fixed in no time. They also made good the controls and carried out air balancing.


I was a little nervous doing my electrical appointment on my own as my partner was unavailable. Janae (Electrical Design Consultant) was friendly, helpful and had a clear understanding of everything, making the electrical appointment stress-free. Janae was quick with responding to any enquiries or emails. I was very happy with her service & would highly recommend.

Happy to give a big thumbs up and thank you to Richard in the sales team and the guys who replaced our 22 year old full ducted system in our double storey home, with a new Daikin 20kw system. Only installed one day and already appreciate how quiet the unit is. Despite the rain they were through the job in a few hours and were completely professional, very happy to recommend this company.


Thank you, Richard, Jimmy, and the rest of the Vaccaro team, for providing such timely and professional service, installing a split air conditioning system in my home today. Jimmy’s level of awareness to be respectful of the peace and cleanliness of the property during the installation was greatly appreciated. My apartment feels lovely and toasty – I may never leave!
