- Your property is within the UK.
- Your vehicle is eligible for the grant.
- You are the registered keeper or primary user of the vehicle after 1 October 2016.
- You can provide evidence that you own or lease an electric vehicle (even if you haven’t received the vehicle).
- You have not already claimed the grant for your vehicle.

HOW DO I APPLY FOR A GRANT?
To claim £500 off the cost of your new home charging point, order it with us, provide us with your documentation and we will take care of your claim for you. We can only take care of your claim if Andersen carries out your installation for you.
Providing you are eligible for the OLEV grant, once your order has been placed we will liaise with you to get the information we need and we will process the grant on your behalf. We can only take care of your claim if Andersen carries out your installation for you.
