Electric Vehicle Chargepoint funding.

To encourage UK drivers to switch to electric and reduce emissions, the government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) offers a grant to help towards the cost of an EV chargepoint.

As an OLEV-approved chargepoint installer, we can access these schemes for our customers.

For Businesses

Workplace Charging Scheme

Businesses are eligible for this funding if:

  • Your workplace has off-street parking

  • You can demonstrate a business need for the chargepoint

  • Your chargepoint is installed by an OLEV-approved company such as RES-EV

Further guidance is available here.

How much can you claim?

The grants cover up to 75% of the installation costs, capped at £500 per chargepoint socket. Businesses can claim up to 20 sockets (20 single socket or 10 double socket chargepoints). OLEV has Workplace Charging Scheme funding available for 8,000 sockets, or until 31st March 2019, whichever comes first.
