OZEV Grant

To charge your Electric Vehicle, you will need to install a Charge Point at your home, or a small business. Typically, these will be 7kW ‘fast’ chargers. You must appoint an authorised Charge Point Installer to carry out the work if you want to claim from the OZEV EVHS or WCS grants.

Overview of the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme

Since April 2022, the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) is no longer be open to homeowners (including people with mortgages) who live in single-unit properties such as bungalows and detached, semi-detached or terraced housing.

The scheme only remains open to:

  • homeowners who live in flats

  • people in rental accommodation (flats and single-use properties)

New rules for workplaces and commercial properties

Workplaces and commercial properties are currently eligible for the £350 OZEV grant under the Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS). However, the criteria for eligible workplaces will change under the new April 1st 1st OZEV grant rules. 

 

The new changes will make the WCS grant available to:

  • SMEs

  • Small accommodation businesses

  • B&Bs

  • Charities 

  • Commercially let premises owners

 

This will open up the opportunity for more businesses to claim up to £350 of the cost of each charge point installation, with up to 40 charge points per applicant. The OZEV changes will, for instance, allow the owner of a small accommodation business to claim funding for charge points that are available for guests. Whereas previously, they could only receive funding for charge points being used by staff.

Details of Charge Point Installers and grants are available on the government website.
