Unique Tech & Electrical Installation

EV Charging

With the goal of heading towards a more environmentally sustainable future, the Government are offering electric vehicle charging grants to encourage more individuals to swap their petrol/diesel-powered cars, for much clean electric vehicles.

The EV Charge Point grant provides funding of up to 75% towards the cost of installing electric vehicle smart charge points at domestic properties across the UK. It replaced the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) on 1 April 2022. The schemes cover a range of different situations.

Who Can Access The Grant?

Flat Owners

The EV charge point grant for flat owner-occupiers and people living in rented properties is for anyone who:

  • Owns and lives in a flat
  • Rents any residential property

The grant covers up to 75% of the cost to buy and install a chargepoint socket, up to £350 per grant.

Your installer will claim the grant on your behalf.

The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) provides this grant.

Staff and Fleets

This guidance is for small and medium-sized companies (with 249 employees or less) looking for help with the cost of installing infrastructure for electric vehicle (EV) charge points in parking reserved for their staff or fleet.

The EV infrastructure grant for staff and fleets will give money towards the infrastructure businesses need for charge points, as well as for installing the charge points themselves.

This grant can be used in conjunction with the Workplace Charging Scheme, which helps fund the installation of chargepoints, but not the cost of chargepoint infrastructure.

Both grants may be used for the same site, but not the same chargepoints.

Residential Carparks

This guidance is for residential and commercial landlords, social housing providers or property factors seeking funding to install electric vehicle (EV) charge point infrastructure in the residential car parks of rental and leasehold properties.

The EV infrastructure grant is open to:

  • The landlord of a property that lets the property
  • A right to manage (RTM) company
  • Companies the own the freehold of a leased or rented property
  • Companies that own a building’s common areas. The company may comprise shareholders who are the leaseholders. The company may also manage the building
  • Property factor listed on the property factor register
  • Private registered providers of social housing (PRP)
  • Public authorities, such as government departments and their agencies, the armed forces, local governments, the NHS and emergency services
  • Charities

Landlords

The EV charge point grant for landlords is for residential or commercial properties. You must be a landlord or other entity that rents, leases or manages properties in the UK.

The grant covers up to 75% of the cost to buy and install a charge point socket, limited to £350 per grant. Some chargepoints may have more than one socket.

Each financial year, landlords can receive up to:

  • 200 grants for residential properties
  • 100 grants for commercial properties

These can be across several properties and installations or for one property.

The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) provides this grant.
