Get set up with Evnex

Once you've signed up for our EV power plan and chosen the smart charger add-on you're only a few easy steps away from installation. 

Our smart charging partner, Evnex, will guide you through the installation process for your home EV charger. 

1. Confirm your set-up

Once you've joined with us, an Evnex rep will be in touch to check some details about your install and provide a quote. 

Installations can vary based on different house and garage set ups, so it's important to check these first. 

2. Accept your quote

Your installation quote will be emailed to you. A simple installation starts at $2,195 and more complex installations will cost extra.

When you accept the quote you can select whether you want to pay up front or across monthly repayments. Once you’ve done this it will form part of a binding agreement between you and us for the installation and purchase of your charger

If you decide you don't want to go through with the installation, no worries. You'll still get the great benefits of our EV at home plan. 

3. Arrange your install

An installation will typically occur within 1-2 weeks, depending on yours and the installer's availability.

The installation takes about three hours and you don't need to be home, provided the installer can access relevant areas.

Once it's complete you'll get a welcome email from Evnex with all the information you need to start charging.
