Tesla warns new Australian rules will inflate cost of home chargers and slow transition to EVs
New standards for EV charging equipment could add thousands of dollars to the cost of home EV chargers, and erect yet another barrier to EVs in Australia.
South Australia is considering imposing rules that would require electric vehicle chargers to have demand response capabilities.
The rules also would apply to other high-load household devices that don't need to be on all the time to perform their functions, such as pool pumps, air conditioners and electric hot water systems.
Tesla and other EV makers say the rules are unnecessary for EV chargers because they are already equipped to encourage charging in the middle of the day, when solar panels in the Australian state are generating the most power.
