Home charge scheme

Homecharge 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.

What is the Home charge scheme grant?

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.

Landlords & social housing providers

  • A grant of up to £350.00 per installed socket.
  • A maximum grant of up to £70,000, no more than 200 applications.
  • Applicants must be registered businesses or local public authority. If they are a private entity they must be registered with Companies House, have a VAT registration, or be a private registered provider of social housing.
  • Each property has to have associated off-street parking. There is no maximum limit as to how many charge point sockets can be installed in each property within the overall maximum grant available.

Apartment block owners

  • A grant of up to £30,000 per building is available.
  • A maximum of 30 applications per year is permitted per applicant.
  • The grant available per application will depend on how many parking bays can be provided with a charge point socket, a grant of up to £850 is available per bay.
  • Grants (of up to £500 per bay) will also be provided for supporting infrastructure to allow a charge point to be installed at a later date.
  • Applicants must be a registered business or a public authority. If they are a private entity, they may be registered with Companies House, have a VAT registration, or be a private registered provider of social housing.
  • The property must have associated off-street parking. There is no limit as to how many charge point sockets can be installed in each property within the overall £30,000 grant per property.
  • A minimum of five bays must be set aside for EV charging with at least one of which having a working charge point installed.

How do I apply?

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.
