The Electric Wave: How Wellington is Plugging into the EV Revolution

Welcome to the Astral Electrical blog, where we illuminate the electrical trends and innovations shaping Wellington's future 🚗

The Surge of EV Popularity

Wellington, renowned for its beautiful landscapes and commitment to sustainability, is experiencing a surge in EV adoption. The reasons are clear: with advances in technology, an increase in environmental awareness, and supportive policies from the government, EVs are becoming a practical and eco-friendly choice for more Kiwis every day.

Why Wellingtonians are Choosing EVs

  • Sustainable Living: As a city that prides itself on green living, Wellingtonians are making choices that reduce carbon emissions and promote clean energy. EVs fit perfectly into this ethos.

  • Economic Advantages: With petrol prices on the rise, the cost-effectiveness of electric cars is becoming increasingly attractive. Not to mention, EVs require less maintenance than their combustion-engine counterparts. Latest estimates show that it costs less than $5 in electricity to charge an EV for a 100km journey, compared to $21 in petrol.
  • Government Incentives: Until 31 December 2023 the New Zealand government still offers incentives like the Clean Car Discount. So if you get in fast with your paperwork before the cut-off, you will still qualify.
  • Growing Infrastructure: The expansion of charging stations across Wellington makes it more convenient than ever to own and operate an EV.

The Role of Residential EV Chargers

The convenience of charging at home cannot be overstated. With a home EV charger, you can simply "fill up" overnight and wake up to a fully charged vehicle ready for the day's adventures.

At Astral Electrical, we're at the forefront of this revolution, installing state-of-the-art EV chargers in homes across the city. Our master electricians ensure that your home charging stations are installed safely and efficiently, providing you with peace of mind and the ultimate in convenience.
