Impacts on the network

Electric Vehicles (EVs) can bring many benefits to the electricity network. They have the potential to help manage peak demand, reducing the need to grow the network, ultimately relieving pressure on electricity prices.

We want to provide an EV friendly network with flexible charging options that won’t increase peak demand, such as using time of use tariffs and economy tariffs like T31 and T33.

The choice is limited at this stage, but we will continue to work with regulators on EV charging options for regional Queensland.
