Get government funding for the installation of electric vehicle charging points.
Apply For The OLEV Grant Scheme
Looking to purchase and install electric vehicle charging points? Did you know that eligible drivers, businesses and councils can now get funding for the build of EV charging infrastructure from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV)?
To support the wider use of electric and hybrid vehicles, the government now offers 3 types of OLEV funding:
- Workplace Charging Scheme
This scheme is intended for any business who wants to buy EV charging hardware to charge its electric fleet or offer charging solutions for both staff and visitors.
- On-Street Charging Scheme
This scheme aims to assist councils with a contribution towards the cost of implementing an on-street charging solution in areas that have limited off-road parking.
- Homecharge Scheme
If you are an individual who leases or owns a plug-in hybrid or full-electric vehicle and you live in a property that has off-road parking, you can apply for the Home Scheme with OLEV contributing money towards the cost of supplying and installing your electric vehicle charging point.
Further Eligibility Criteria For The OLEV Grant Scheme
Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme
The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme provides funding of up to 75% towards the cost of installing electric vehicle chargepoints at domestic properties across the UK with the grant cap set at £350 per installation.
The main requirement is that you own, lease, or have ordered a qualifying vehicle and have dedicated off-street parking at your property. You may apply for 2 chargepoints at the same property if you have 2 qualifying vehicles.
Workplace Charging Scheme
Under the voucher-based Workplace Charging Scheme, if you are an eligible business, charity or a public sector organisation, you can be offered financial support towards the up-front costs of electric vehicle charge-points.
Funding is available for 75% of purchase and installation costs, up to £350 for each socket and up to a maximum of 40 sockets for each company that’s applying.
