Funding is currently available towards the cost of home charge points for electric vehicles from the Energy Saving Trust and the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV). Please note this Energy Saving Trust funding is available for addresses in Scotland only.
The typical cost for a home charge point and installation is approximately £1000. As part of its Electric Vehicle Homecharge scheme, OLEV currently offers applicants £500 towards this cost. Energy Saving Trust will provide up to £300 further funding on top of this. For the cost covered by OLEV you will not need to make any payment to your supplier, as they will receive this money from OLEV directly. For the costs above what OLEV cover, you will have to pay your supplier and Energy Saving Trust will then provide you with your (up to £300) reimbursement. Any remaining costs above the £500 provided by OLEV and the £300 provided by Energy Saving Trust you would need to pay for yourself.
For this, we need you to complete a short application form and also send us a quote from your chosen supplier along with proof of purchase/lease of your EV in advance of the installation. Please note that we cannot offer you a grant if your installation has already been completed.
Applicants need to arrange their installations directly with their chosen supplier and Energy Saving Trust's involvement is solely to offer grant funding.
Any installation carried out by an OLEV-accredited supplier is eligible for the £500 funding that OLEV provide, however to be eligible for Energy Saving Trust funding of up to an additional £300, installations must be carried out by one of our approved installers.
