Charging at Home
What grants are available for home electric vehicle charging points?
As the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles are committed to a greener and more sustainable future, they have invested a significant sum of money to support drivers in making the switch to electric.
From 1st April 2022, homeowners of single-unit properties will no longer be eligible for the EVHS grant funding - those who are seeking to install a smart home charging point at their single-unit property must have the installation completed by 31st March 2022 and claims completed by 31st April 2022.
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.
