LTA has launched the Electric Vehicle Common Charger Grant (ECCG) to kickstart the installation of shared charging infrastructure in non-landed private residences (NLPRs).
The ECCG will co-fund installation costs of 2,000 EV chargers at NLPRs, as an early adoption incentive. As NLPRs form a significant proportion of residences in Singapore, improving charger provision and access is an important step towards improving the coverage of Singapore’s national EV charging network. At the 2021 Committee of Supply debates, the Government had announced a target to deploy 60,000 EV charging points by 2030, of which 20,000 will be in private premises such as NLPRs, and 40,000 in public carparks.
Applications for the ECCG opened on 29 July 2021 and will be assessed on a first-come, first-served basis. The ECCG will be available until 31 December 2023, or until 2,000 chargers have been supported by co-funding, whichever is earlier. Interested parties may apply via the Government’s Business Grants Portal.
