Commercial EV Charging

Kinetic Electrical provides nationwide installation services for Commercial EV Charging

There is so much to consider when choosing the right EV charging solution for commercial use. Kinetic Electrical works with a number of New Zealand’s leading consultants and solution providers to address this part of the market. There are solutions designed to meet the EV charging needs of;

  • Large businesses looking to move their fleet to EV
  • Hotels and motels looking to provide overnight charging for guests
  • Apartment blocks looking to provide day one charging capacity to all tenants
  • Apartments in the design/construction phase looking to lay down the foundation for a gradual, tenant drive uptake of EV charging
  • Retail and hospitality locations that provide clients and the public access to EV charging

In all cases consideration needs to be given to load management (so as to not impact power availability within the building or site), individual power usage/cost (so as to allow the on charging/cost recovery of the power used) and of course the projects total cost of ownership.

What else needs to be considered?

Smarting Charging: EV chargers that have built in communication capabilities and can vary their charging based on external signals are known as Smart Chargers. For commercial use multiple Smart Chargers can be configured to work together, to make optimum use of the incoming power supply, take full advantage of lower-cost off-peak power and react to important load requests from the building or grid, by temporarily reducing charge rates.

What EV charging standards are recognized in New Zealand? New Zealand recognises ( as at November 2022) international standards on EV charging: IEC, ISO, ISO/IEC and ITU. WorkSafe Energy Safety’s EV charging safety guidelines reference the following standards IEC 61851-1, IEC 61851-23 and UL 2251.
