This note confirms how these infrastructure grants schemes will operate this year. OLEV will update guidance documents in light of these changes in the coming weeks.
As from the 1 April 2020 the grant for these schemes will be set at £350 towards the cost of purchase and installation of a chargepoint at home through the electric vehicle homecharge scheme, and £350 towards a chargepoint socket at work through the workplace charging scheme. This is a reduction from £500 to £350 although the number of sockets allowed will double from 20 to 40.
The new rate will apply to installations on or after 1 April 2020 for EVHS and will apply to voucher applications submitted on or after 1 April 2020 for WCS.
