To help private plug-in vehicle owners offset some of the up front cost of the purchase and installation of a dedicated domestic recharging unit the Government is running the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme. The scheme is available for chargepoints installed from May 2018 and replaces the previous version of the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme with revisions to include vehicles eligible under the Plug-in Taxi Grant.
Customers who are the registered keeper, lessee or have primary use of an eligible electric vehicle can claim up to 75%, capped at £500, of the total capital cost of the chargepoint and associated installation costs.
The grant can only be processed by installers who have been authorised by The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and who have approval from a chargepoint manufacturer to install accredited equipment. Our EVHS Homecharge approval number is EVHS1771. We do not work through middlemen or third party call or support centres.
The Office of Low Energy Vehicles is a team that works across several government departments.
The Government reserves the right to terminate the grant at any time but will aim to provide 4 weeks notice and will honour grant claims made during this notice period following the announcement of the end of the scheme.
