If you are looking to purchase your own Electric Vehicle (EV) charger for home or business use, there are a range of Electric Vehicle Government Grants to take advantage of. Here is an overview of what grants you can claim so you know when, where and how to apply.
This is good for businesses, charities and local government offices who wish to offer charging to their fleets, staff and customers. Apply to receive a £350 voucher off per socket. You won’t need to actually own an electric car, but you’ll need to declare either a current need for EV charging infrastructure or an intention to encourage uptake amongst your staff and/or fleet. Apply for the voucher before purchasing your EV charger and forward your approval paperwork to your chosen installer who will claim back your grant after your installation.
Scottish customers can get up to an additional £250 off their charge point. This is on top of their OZEV grant. This is a voucher-based scheme. Customers must apply for the voucher and receive approval from the EST before their EV charger is installed.
Customers in the Republic of Ireland can get a €600 discount.
