I would like to charge my EV in my building
Every year, more and more New Zealander’s move to apartment living as a sustainable, affordable urban alternative. If this is you, you may also be considering (or have already made) a shift to electric mobility. EVs are ideal for commuter transport, and there is no reason you shouldn’t be able to charge at home.
JET Charge are committed to making charging accessible to every New Zealander, including apartment-dwellers.

Can I get an EV charger just for me?
Surprisingly for many, we recommend EV charging in your own car space. That’s because most charging happens overnight, so unless the building implements rapid DC charging in communal spaces, it’s not a long term solution to have everyone share a charging station.
Those of us who drive EVs know that we sleep while we charge, and that our charging behaviour is very different to those who drive petrol and diesel cars, who have to put up with the inconvenience of going to a petrol station all the time. We help you get a “fueling” station in your own car space!
JET Charge will prepare all proposals on behalf of EV drivers to their owners’ corporation and strata manager.
How do I keep track of electricity usage?
As much as we’d all love to get fuel for free, the reality is that our owners’ corporation or body corporate won’t let us install an EV charging station unless we can somehow account for the electricity.
JET Charge offers a variety of options to track and pay for electricity usage. The two most common are either by connecting to your existing electricity meter (possible in smaller apartment blocks) or by using a digital solution like Chargefox.
You can pay per session or by a set period, and Chargefox will reimburse the body corporate every quarter for the amount of electricity you consume. Simple.
Contacting your Owners’ Corp or Site Management
If you’re the first in your complex to buy an EV, it can be tricky to know how to approach your OC for charging permission. Thankfully, we’re here to help! JET Charge have worked with hundreds of apartment residents in their charger installations.
We’ve use this experience to help guide EV owners that live in apartments through the process.
If you would like any help with this process, please contact the JET Charge team as we are standing by to help.
