The Olev Grant
The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) is a team working across the UK government to support the installation of electric vehicle charging points.
To gain access to these grants, you must use an EV installation company who is on the list of authorised installers, just like Warwickshire EV.
The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) grant, is a government-backed initiative that offers the homeowner 75% off the total cost of their smart charger up to a maximum of £350.
To qualify for the grant, the vehicle must be on a qualifying list set out by the government.
The chargepoint must be off the smart type whereby it can connect remotely to the internet.
The installer of the selected charging equipment must also be on the manufactures approved installer list. (such as Warwickshire EV).
The chargepoint must also be positioned for off-street charging (e.g. driveway or a garage).
The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) is a voucher-based scheme that provides support towards the up-front costs of the purchase and installation of electric vehicle chargepoints.
This is specially designed for fleet or employee usability, offering 75% capped at £350 for each chargepoint, up to a maximum of 40 chargers.
The scheme requires dedicated off-street parking.
The charger must be installed by an OLEV approved workplace installer. (such as Warwickshire EV).
Unlike the home charger scheme no proof of an EV is required, however, a declaration of need or intent is a requirement.
You should either own the property or the need for Landlords consent will be required.
