SNZ PAS 6011:2023 Residential electric vehicle (EV) charging(external link)

SNZ PAS 6011:2023 has been prepared by representatives from the motor vehicle industry, electrical engineering and transport sectors, and energy retailers and central government regulators. It collates advice for New Zealand consumers on how to install an EV charging station in a residential setting, or at a residential home. It also provides guidance on how to charge an EV safely and cost- effectively at home. Use this guideline if you are a New Zealand consumer who is thinking about buying an EV or has already joined the fast-growing fleet of EV owners. It will help you focus on the important considerations related to charging your EV, such as when and where best to charge, and how to maximise the benefits from your EV – now and in the future.

This guideline will also help you understand the different charging systems available in New Zealand, and technology that will be introduced in the future. This includes smart EV charging and its relationship with demand flexibility.
