EV charging grants – For home
Support for installing a home charge point
If you own a flat or live in rented accommodation, you may be eligible for a grant to help with the cost of installing an electric vehicle charge point. The Electric Vehicle (EV) Chargepoint Grant was introduced by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV), a government team that supports the UK’s transition to zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) by funding charging infrastructure and supporting the increase in electric vehicles.
What does this grant offer?
The EV Chargepoint Grant provides funding that covers 75% of the cost of installing one EV charge point at your home, capped at £350. This grant replaced the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) on 1 April 2022.
Who is eligible?
To be eligible for this scheme, you need to either own a flat or live in a rented property. Applicants need to have a private off-street parking space and own an OZEV-approved electric vehicle.
How do I apply?
To apply for the scheme, contact an OZEV-authorised installer such as Radius Charge to get a quote for the required work. Once you accept a quote, your installer can start your claim for you. You will then receive an email with a link to an online form to fill out. Your installer must complete the work within 90 days of your application being approved and when the work is finished, your installer will claim the grant on your behalf.
