The UK government, specifically the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV), offers consumers a 75% contribution to the cost and installation of a single home chargepoint up to a maximum of £350 per eligible vehicle. The scheme was formerly known as the OLEV grant (Office for Low Emission Vehicles).
The key features of the OZEV grant scheme are as follows:
Please note that the OZEV scheme changed in early 2022 to become much more restrictive. As it will no longer apply to most of our customers, we will not be selling projects with the grant anymore.
The scheme is open to individuals who:
An electric vehicle is eligible if it has been approved by OZEV. See the full list of eligible vehicles.
In addition to being the registered keeper, leasing or have primary access to an electric vehicle you must have off street parking facilities suitable for chargepoint installation.
If you do not have off street parking, your Local Authority may be able to help via a central Government grant to install recharging infrastructure. See more details.
The grant is now only available to residents of flats or rental accommodation, or landlords.
The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme requires each grant claim to be accompanied by a form which includes a customer declaration. The customer declaration is an important part of the grant claim and any missing information will make the claim invalid and payment will not be made.
As the resident and registered keeper (or in some cases the lessee or primary user) you should read the form carefully to make sure you can answer all of the questions and provide all of the necessary evidence
Chargepoint installers are required to collect data on each charging event and to send anonymised summary data to OZEV, or its representatives, every quarter. Data handling is fully compliant with the provisions of the Data Protection Act. For each charging event, the following data will be collected:
Eligible chargepoints must be 'smart'. This means chargepoints must be able to be remotely accessed, and capable of receiving, interpreting and reacting to a signal.
To qualify for the grant, you must use an OZEV approved installer, such as Spirit Energy.
You can see the official list of approved installers.
Please note that we only install domestic EV chargepoints alongside new solar PV systems and no longer offer the grant, since it is too restrictive for most of our customers.
