Did you know that you could benefit from £350 OZEV grant funding towards your EV chargepoint?
From 1st April 2022, homeowners of single-unit properties will no longer be eligible for the EVHS grant funding.
The new EV Chargepoint Grant replaces the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) and is open to:
homeowners who live in flats
people in rental accommodation (flats and single-use properties)
residential and commercial landlords, social housing providers or property factors
Residents in flats and rental properties will be eligible for £350 grant funding towards the purchase and installation of their charging point. To be eligible for the grant funding, residents must have off-street parking and an eligible EV/PHEV.
Landlords and housing associations will also be eligible for OZEV grant funding; £350 per socket (units that are equipped with two sockets will be eligible for £700 grant funding per unit). A maximum of 200 grant funding applications can be made per year. Although there are no limits on the number of sockets per property, the charging units must be installed across private parking spaces.
OZEV Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS)
If you’re looking to install electric vehicle charging points at your business premises, you could be eligible for up to £14,000 OZEV WCS grant funding.
Businesses of all shapes and sizes could be eligible for £350 OZEV WCS grant funding per socket at their workplace car park. The maximum number of charging sockets allowed at each location is 40. The following conditions must be met for businesses deploying EV charging infrastructure:
Must have sufficient off street parking
Your fleet does not require EVs currently, however you will be required to express the existing or future need for the business.
An OZEV approved workplace charging point installer must install your charger (there are thousands of Rolec/OZEV approved installers across the UK).
OZEV WCS is a voucher based system, follow the steps below to claim:
Complete an online application form
You will receive an e-voucher if successful. You must present the voucher code provided to your chosen OZEV approved installer. The grant will then be claimed after project completion.
The voucher code is valid for 120 days from the date of issue.
