EV Common Charger Grant

LTA has launched the Electric Vehicle Common Charger Grant (ECCG) to encourage the installation of shared Electric Vehicle (EV) chargers in non-landed private residences (NLPRs), such as condominiums and private apartments.

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 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 open from 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 approved for co-funding, whichever is earlier. Interested parties may apply via the Government’s Business Grants Portal.

Charger installation date

The charger must not have been installed before 19 July 2021, and before an applicant had received the letter of offer from LTA, indicating the approved grant quantum. 

This is to ensure that applicants do not pre-emptively install chargers when they may not qualify for the grant.  

Installed in non-landed private residences (NLPRs) NLPRs are defined as private developments that include residential units, with the exception of landed properties, shophouses, hotels, hostels, serviced apartments, and workers’ dormitories.

Installed in common area of NLPRs The chargers must be installed in a common area that is accessible to the residents in the NLPR. 

Number of chargers that a NLPR is eligible for The ECCG may co-fund the installation of smart chargers for up to 1% of residential car park lots, rounded-up to the nearest whole number. 
 
Example 1: If there are 140 car park lots in a NLPR, 1% of 140 =1.4, rounded-up to the nearest whole number will be 2. This means that 2 chargers will be eligible for co-funding.

Example 2: If there are 70 car park lots in an NLPR, 1% of 70 = 0.7, rounded-up to the nearest whole number to 1. This means that 1 charger will be eligible for co-funding.

The ECCG is designed to catalyse the initial deployment of chargers in as many NLPRs as possible. As such, the ECCG will only fund the installation of chargers for up to 1% of residential parking lots within each NLPR.

Installation of smart chargers

The ECCG is applicable only for “Smart Chargers”, which must be able to minimally perform all the following functions:

  1. Able to receive and react to information received, such as by adjusting the rate of charging;
  2. Able to monitor and record energy consumption and timestamp of consumption, and be able to transmit it; and
  3. Makes use of Open Charge Point Protocol (version 1.6 or above) to transmit and receive information.

The charger must also have a valid LNO issued by the EMA-LTA Interim-Joint-Panel.

Organisations operating the charger must also have the capabilities to make use of the smart charging functions.

Smart chargers facilitate energy planning and more efficient electricity consumption, and allow the government to better plan and implement the relevant infrastructure required for EV charging points. 

Co-funded components

Owners of the chargers, whether an EV Charging Operator or the owners of the NLPR (e.g. the management corporation of a strata-titled development), can apply for ECCG to cover three upfront cost components of charger installation: 

  1. Charging system (e.g. charger equipment); 
  2. Licensed electrical worker fees; and 
  3. Cabling and installation costs (subject to $1,000 cap). 

The ECCG will co-fund 50% of each of the above cost components, subject to the relevant cost component cap, and an overall cap of $4,000 per charger.
