Kerb Charge


Frequently Asked Questions

The Kerb Charge system includes the Kerb Charge unit, our certified charge station and connection cable to your vehicle. 

What is included in the Kerb Charge system?

 The Kerb Charge unit installed in the footpath or nature strip in front of the home, is owned by the home owner. They pay for the system, and therefore own their unit. 

Who owns the Kerb Charge unit?

The costs associated with installing Kerb Charge are born by the home owner. Kerb Charge is connected to the homes power, and all electricity costs associated with running Kerb Charge are also born by the home owner.

Who pays for the Kerb Charge system?

Due to Victorian electrical regulations Kerb Charge is  strictly for personal, not public use. It is yours; the local council grant a use permit for vehicles of the household. The householders become the sole authorised users.

Is Kerb Charge for public use?

Installing a Kerb Charge unit will not grant you exclusive use of the on-street car parking space. We acknowledge in certain areas this may be problematic. 

Here at Kerb Charge we believe there isn't a one size fits all solution for EV charging.  While we don't pretend to be the solution for everyone, we do believe our technology will be a great solution for many.

Does Kerb Charge give you exclusive use of the on-street car parking space?

When retracted the Kerb Charge unit sits flush with the footpath and therefore presents no tripping hazard. When extended the Kerb Charge unit will have a car parked directly next to it and is no more a tripping hazard than other footpath infrastructure. 

Is the Kerb Charge unit a tripping hazard?

The Kerb Charge Unit is protected in the retracted and extended positions; in the retracted position by a key lock, in the extended position by a tamper activated audio lock.

How is the Kerb Charge unit protected from vandalism and unauthorised use?
