OLEV Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS)

This scheme is no longer available to home owners. However there are grants available for flat owner-occupiers and people living in rented properties.

As part of the EVHS we helped customers to apply for funding from the OLEV grant scheme for homes and businesses for the past few years. The grant funding is a home charge scheme provided a 75% contribution towards the cost of a single charge point and installation up to a maximum of £350 (including VAT) per household/eligible vehicle. A person was able to apply for 2 charge points at the same property if they had 2 qualifying vehicles. As a EVHS installer we checked that our clients qualified for the grant and then applied on their behalf. We billed for the price of the installation, minus the grant amount applied for.

Installations completed using that scheme had to be completed by the 31 March 2022 and a claim submitted to DVLA by 30 April 2022.
