Home charge scheme
The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) have introduced a variety of grant schemes to aid with the installation of the electric vehicle charging infrastructure nationwide as millions of UK vehicle drivers are set to make the change to EV.
The Electric Vehicle Home charge Scheme (EVHS) Grant is focused on landlords, social housing providers and owners of apartment blocks. This is to enable a smoother transition and planning for the infrastructure of electric vehicle charge points in this area of living. The £350.00 offset of the cost towards the installation can be claimed on behalf of tenants/ landlords subject to the minimum eligibility criteria. Whilst being designed also for large housing blocks, this helps take the pressure and responsibility for installing a charge point in an apartment block away from individual flat owners. It can still be claimed by people who rent their homes or those who live in flats.
If you are a landlord, social housing provider or owner of an apartment block, you will need to create an account on the Government OZEV department portal. This allows you to give all the relevant information such as your premises address, property type, amount of charge points needed and business information.
You will then receive an OZEV authorisation code and reference number subject to meeting the minimum eligibly criteria and initial checks. You can forward this to your chosen installation company who will then use this code in your application towards the OZEV grant.
We take care of the grants available for you. We ensure all the relevant paperwork is in hand before installation and we will even contact the local electricity supplier to notify them of the installation. Our on-board application allows easy quotation and gives us the information we need to supply you a complete quotation with no hidden charges. This is subject to meeting the minimum eligibility requirements.
