Property managers can get up to 50% towards the cost of buying and installing electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure at communal residential parking areas in Scotland.  

The funding helps people living in factored developments to have better access to EV charging. 

Please note, only people who manage communal parking for residential properties, known as a property manager or property factor, can apply for the funding.
