OLEV Homecharge & Workplace Grants continue

The Office for Low Emission Vehicles has recently confirmed the continuation of the ‘electric vehicle homecharge scheme’ (EVHS) and ‘workplace charging scheme’ (WCS) for another year.

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.
