Are you looking to purchase your first electric vehicle, or are you considering charging solutions for your business, fleet or residential properties? If so, there are a range of Government Grants available that can help you with the purchase and installation costs.
All our products and installers are approved by the Office for Zero Emissions Vehicles, who manage the grants, and we’re here to make the process easy for you.
This grant is for anyone who owns or lives in a flat or rents any residential property.
The grant provides up to £350, or 75% off, the purchase and installation of a new smart home charger.
You can only claim one chargepoint per eligible vehicle, and you must have dedicated off-street parking.
To be eligible, you must own, have leased for 6 months, or have ordered a qualifying vehicle from the OZEV approved vehicle list.
Note: The Electric Vehicle Chargepoint Grant replaced the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme on the 1st April 2022. Currently there is no grant available for those that own a house.
To apply, get a quote from one of our approved installers and they will complete the application on your behalf.
Note: The Electric Vehicle Chargepoint Grant will close on the 31st March 2024.
Grants for Landlords
Landlords thinking about making their portfolio EV friendly can benefit from 2 Government Grants, both of which can be used at the same property.
Electric Vehicle Chargepoint Grant
This grant provides up to £350, or 75% off the purchase and installation of a chargepoint.
You can apply for up to 200 grants a year for residential properties, and a further 100 commercial properties.
You can’t apply if you live in the property, if your property is a holiday rental or if you rent the parking space from someone else.
Spaces must be off-street, private, clearly defined and accessible to tenants.
Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Grant
To apply, you must lease, rent or manage a multi-tenancy residential property with a shared car park.
You can claim a maximum of £30,000 and up to 30 grants per financial year.
You can only claim once per building, but as long as you install 1 active chargepoint, the rest can be saved for future installations.
To apply, you’ll need to apply directly through the OZEV webpage. Don’t worry, our OZEV approved installers are on hand to offer any assistance.
Note: The Electric Vehicle Chargepoint Grant and The Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Grant will close on the 31st March 2024.
EV Infrastructure for Staff and Fleets Grant
Small to medium businesses who want to provide charge points for their staff or fleet can apply for this grant to help pay for the infrastructure and installation.
The grant provides up to £15k and you can claim up to 5 grants in total.
To be eligible, companies must have registered at Companies House or be VAT registered with HMRC, and have 249 employees or less.
The chargepoints must be for fleet or staff use and you’ll need to install the infrastructure in at least 5 parking spots.
If you need more chargepoints, you can apply for further grants such as the workplace charging scheme.
To apply you’ll need to register on the UK Government website, and then contact us via the Easee website. We’ll put you in touch with an OZEV approved installer who will complete the application on your behalf.
Note: The EV Infrastructure for Staff and Fleets Grant will close on the 31st March 2024.
Workplace Charging Scheme
The Workplace Charging Scheme helps businesses, charities and public sector organisations with the upfront cost of buying and installing electric vehicle chargepoints.
The grant covers up to 75% of the overall purchase and installation of up to 40 sockets (capped at £350 per socket). This could equate to as much as £40k!
To be eligible you must have dedicated off-street parking for staff only.
You must also be able to declare a business need for charging equipment, or want to encourage EV adoption among your staff or fleet.
Your site must have a minimum of 3kW per socket and you must have more than one socket available for each accessible parking space.
To apply, you need to apply for a voucher code on the Government Grant website. You’ll then need to present this to one of our approved installers and they’ll do the rest.
Note: The Workplace Charging Scheme grant will close on the 31st March 2024.
