Getting a chargepoint installed

The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme

For the last few years, the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) provided an incentive for getting a homecharge point installed in the form of a grant. This grant provides up to £350 off the cost of installation and purchase of a home chargepoint through an approved installer. For residents in Scotland, an additional grant of up to £250 (or £350 for those in the most remote areas of Scotland) is available via the Energy Savings Trust Scotland.

Important Changes from April 2022

From April 2022, the above grant will no longer be open to homeowners (including people wth mortgages) who live in single-unit properties such as bungalows and detached, semi detached and terraced houses. Installations in single-unit properties need to be completed by 31 March 2022 to be eligible for the grant.

The scheme will remain open after 31st March 2022 but only for:

  • homeowners who live in flats
  • anyone living in rental accommodation (flats or single use properties)
