The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS), funded by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV), provides a 75% contribution towards the cost of providing and installing one chargepoint, up to a maximum of £350 (including VAT) per chargepoint.
To be eligible for the grant scheme, the applicant must own, lease, or have ordered a qualifying vehicle and must have dedicated off-street parking at their property. A person may receive funding for two chargepoints at the same property if they have two qualifying vehicles.
An EVHS-approved installer must apply for the grant on your behalf. You can find a list of EVHS-approved installers here.
*Update January 2022* From April 2022, the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme will no longer be open to homeowners (including people with mortgages) who live in single-unit properties such as bungalows and detached, semi-detached or terraced housing.
Installations in single-unit properties need to be completed by 31 March 2022 and a claim submitted to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) by 30 April 2022.
The scheme will remain open to:
- Homeowners who live in flats.
- People in rental accommodation (flats and single-use properties).
